Using a liquid emulsion membrane system for the encapsulation of organic and inorganic substrates within inorganic microcapsules

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report the development of a novel technique for the encapsulation of molecular and condensed organic and inorganic substrates within hollow calcium carbonate micro-spheres; the process utilises precipitation at the oil-water interface of a pseudovesicular water-in-oil-in-water emulsion liquid membrane (ELM) system in order to create an inorganic shell around the pre-dispersed media.
