In this course the basic concepts of the following aspects of microencapsulation are introduced:
• Microencapsulation techniques, with emphasis in spray drying
• Selection of wall materials
• Effect of process conditions on the microencapsulation performance
• Microcapsules’ characterization: morphology, particle size, among others
• Industrial applications
Managerial, develoment and technical staff of food, pharmaceutical chemical industries, among many others.
