Flocculate means clumping together, from the Latin for a little bit of something. Deflocculate is the opposite. In chemistry, to disperse a solid into a colloid or suspension. For the rest of us, to break a large mass into little pieces.
The sort of thing which happens 24/7 in the big political parties. They need to flocculate, flocculate, flocculate to survive!
