Abstract: The concept of a diffuse sequence in a $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebra is introduced and exploited to complete the classification of separable, perfect $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebras. A $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebra is separable and perfect exactly when the closure of the pure state space consists entirely of atomic states.
