Polymer Based Microcapsules for Encapsulation

  • 189 Accesses

Part of the Composites Science and Technology book series (CST)

Abstract

Controlled release of active ingredients using polymer microcapsules is a promising approach for many consumer products, personal care products, agrochemical formulations, paints, and coatings. An ideal encapsulation matrix for such applications should be non-toxic in nature, provide a robust mechanical wall and yet allow controlled diffusion, have good adhesion to the applied substrate and be cost effective. This book chapter provides a brief overview of different microencapsulation methods for polymer based microcapsules, its properties and applications
