The colloid-free solution obtained at equilibrium in dialysis. Its composition approaches that of the dispersion medium (more precisely, the limit to which the composition of the dispersion medium tends at large distances from the particles). In the dialysis equilibrium an osmotic pressure difference exists between sol and equilibrium dialysate.
