In order to achieve the "high-level, innovation and challenging" teaching requirements, a novel comprehensive experiment of physical chemistry involving ternary phase diagram, preparation of colloids, and establishment of reaction kinetics was designed by combining the recent development in colloid and interfacial science and nanomaterials. The current experiment is aimed at high-level learning and innovation cultivation, with room remained for raising challenges. With this experiment, the learning interests of students for physical chemistry can be inspired, the fundamental knowledge can be consolidated, and the understanding and comprehensive application ability of physical chemistry theories can be enhanced. It is favorable for broadening the scientific horizon of undergraduates, and cultivating their innovation ability, exploring spirit and environment awareness.

Key words: Physical chemistry, Comprehensive experiment, Surfactant free microemulsion, Nanoparticles, Catalytic kinetics
