Title: Method of making particles from an aqueous sol

Abstract

A process for preparing gel particles from an aqueous sol by forming the sol into droplets in a liquid system wherein the liquid phase contains a liquid organic solvent and a barrier agent. The barrier agent prevents dehydration from occurring too rapidly and permits surface tension effects to form sol droplets into the desired spheroidal shape. A preferred barrier agent is mineral oil.
