Capsules: Thermo-Responsive Multi-Cargo Core Shell Particles (Part. Part. Syst. Charact. 1/2013)



original image

The synthesis of multi-compartment, thermally sensitive capsules is proposed using Pickering-based double emulsions and sol-gel chemistry. As reported by Rénal Backov, Véronique Schmitt, and co-workers on page 62, a limited-coalescence process allows the generation of sizecontrolled systems using a turbulent mixing device that makes an industrial transfer very easy. The release is provoked by an external thermal treatment, while the delivery temperature may be tuned for targeted application by the choice of the appropriate wax.
