Eugenol is natural oil that has excellent antibacterial properties but cannot be used to fabricate many products that require thermal processing. One possible alternative to the use of the eugenol molecules in high-temperature processes is the encapsulation of these molecules in a structure that is not toxic and is resistant to thermal treatment. This work(More)
