Handbook of Encapsulation and Controlled Release.pdf
This handbook covers the entire area of encapsulation (microencapsulation) which is a growing area of research and product development in a vast field. It provides the fundamentals, including the chemical and physicochemical processes, and explores how to apply those processes for different applications in industry. This work takes a broader scope and is designed for scientists and engineers working in various industries such as those related to food, consumer products, pharmaceutical/medical, agriculture, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, cosmetics, flavors, and fragrances.
