This course covers the basic science and engineering of microencapsulation across a wide range of applications including the important stages of emulsification control, stability and release property control. Whilst the majority of the course involves emulsions, multiple emulsions and particle coating, we also provide a comprehensive description of the range of characterisation tools and their applicability. The emphasis is on understanding the flow behaviour of the interaction of the various components in such complex systems. This should provide the basis for a rational approach to formulating and producing micro encapsulates to meet a range of needs.

Who should attend?
Scientists and engineers in the chemical, petroleum, polymers, coatings, inks, food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and general chemical industries with responsibility for R&D projects process engineering, manufacturing or product formulation involving incorporating micro-encapsulates into formulated products.

On completion of this course, you will have an understanding of:
  • developing a rational approach to formulate or modify emulsions for optimal processing behaviour and use available laws and scaling relations to predict behaviour,
  • the various methods to turning emulsions into encapsulates, including the process conditions that impact their final properties and behaviour,
  • selecting characterisation devices and defining measurement procedures for a specific application,
  • evaluation and interpreting experimental data.
