In chemistry, a solution is a special type of homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances.
Counter examples are provided by liquid mixtures that are not homogeneous: colloids, suspensions, emulsions are not considered solutions.

This distinguishes a suspension from a colloid, in which the colloid particles are smaller and do not settle.
