Microencapsulation: A Brief History and Introduction

  • Gene O. Fanger

Abstract

A number of excellent reviews have been published on microencapsulation (I–XI). It is not the purpose of this paper to give a comprehensive review of the field, but rather to acquaint the listener with the historical background and give him a general appreciation of the capabilities and limitation; of the technology.
