mixture

 [miks´chur]
a combination of different drugs or ingredients, as a fluid with other fluids or solids, or of a solid with a liquid.

mix·ture

(miks'chŭr),
1. A mutual incorporation of two or more substances, without chemical union, the physical characteristics of each of the components being retained. A mechanical mixture is a mixture of particles or masses distinguishable as such under the microscope or in other ways; a physical mixture is a more intimate mixture of molecules, as in the case of gases and many solutions.
2. In chemistry, a mingling together of two or more substances without the occurrence of a reaction by which they would lose their individual properties, that is, without permanent gain or loss of electrons.
3. In pharmacy, a preparation, consisting of a liquid holding an insoluble medicinal substance in suspension by means of acacia, sugar, or some other viscid material.
[L. mixtura or mistura]
