Particle surface engineering is the term used to describe the technology that allows the design and manufacture of particles with the desired surface properties. Here the power of this technology is discussed and illustrated. The Figure shows MicroFree powder, a DuPont product containing antimicrobial ingredients that prevent the growth of the bacteria and molds responsible for unpleasant odors and discoloration.
