a·que·ous phase

the water portion of a system consisting of two liquid phases, one mainly water, the other a liquid immiscible with water (for example, benzene, ether).

aqueous phase

a fluid stage of a substance that is based on water in a liquid state, such as a solution of a substance in water.

Arne Dugstad: If an aqueous phase is formed, several competing corrosion mechanisms can be foreseen, depending on the type of impurities that are dissolved in the water phase and the type of cross-chemical reactions (bulk phase reactions) taking place.
These could be interpreted using the kinetic model of the pseudophase proposed by Menger and Portnoy [14], which, taking the micelles as a pseudophase uniformly distributed in the aqueous phase, put forward a reaction scheme with a micelle-substrate equilibrium governed by an equilibrium constant [K.
