CELLULAR POOL

Postby sinjan.j » Thu Jul 05, 2007 2:58 am

in my text book it says," cellular pool comprises of both inorganic and organic molecules, they also consist of aqueous and non aqueous phase."

can anyone plz explain to me the meaning of " aqueous and non aqueous phases in detail?"

From the WWW: "The water portion of a system consisting of two liquid phases, one that is primarily water and a second that is a liquid immiscible with water."

How much detail? Thermodyamic phases are things like “solid, liquid, gas…” These are the types of homogeneous states in which a substance can be found. An aqueous phase usually means a water-soluble form (usually either solid or liquid), and a non-aqueous phase (again, usually either solid or liquid) is a form that is not very soluble or miscible with water. Aqueous and non-aqueous phases tend to separate from each other.
