Kazuki Maeda, Hiroaki Onoe, Masahiro Takinoue and Shoji Takeuchi Multicompartmental Microparticles: Controlled Synthesis of 3D Multi-Compartmental Particles with Centrifuge-Based Microdroplet Formation from a Multi-Barrelled Capillary (Adv. Mater. 10/2012) Advanced Materials 24
Multi-compartmental particles and a centrifuge-based droplet shooting device (CDSD) are described on page 1340 by S. Takeuchi and co-workers. Sodium alginate solutions introduced in a multi-barreled capillary form droplets at the capillary orifice under ultra-high gravity, and are solidified in a CaCl2 solution. The size, shape, and compartmentalization of the particles are con-trolled. All of the fabrication procedures can be conducted on a lab bench within a few minutes using commercially available components.
