Immiscible

In chemistry, immiscible means incapable of being mixed, as with oil and water.

Water and oil are immiscible under most conditions, although they can be made miscible with the addition of an emulsifier.

If the liquids are completely immiscible, the volumes of the liquid layers are the same as the volumes of liquids orginally added to the mixture.
