A general one step route has been developed for the synthesis of rare-earth inorganic–organic hybrid microcapsules. Hollow capsules and core–shell capsules have been prepared by this facile synthetic route. These multifunctionalized capsules would have wide applications in various fields, such as cell biology, drug delivery, diagnostics, and so on.
