Encapsulation

The encapsulation of materials is useful for a variety of settings, ranging from farming and construction to pharmaceutical. According to the requirements of each application, different processes and materials are used accordingly. 

 

  • Fertilizers can be stored in a milli-sized sphere that releases its content slowly over a long period of time, avoiding the repeated addition of more fertilizer.

 

  • Pharmaceutical drugs that require slow absorption into the blood system could be nanoencapsulated according to requirements. 

 

  • Construction materials that suffer from environmental exposure would be coated by nanoparticles in a microcapsule with a wide range of abilities: electrical and thermal insulation, and many more depending on desired properties.
