A. R. Patel, K. P. Velikov, and co-workers report novel all-natural microcapsules fabricated by utilisation of the spontaneous non-covalent interactions between a biopolymer gelatin and a natural resin-shellac. On page 4710, versatile applications of these novel microcapsules for pharmaceuticals (encapsulation and release of bioactive molecules), foods (loading of colorants and flavors), sensors (encapsulation of pH sensitive dye), and biotechnology (enzyme immobilization) fields are successfully demonstrated.
