Single-component microcapsules were fabricated by the in situ reaction of ferrocenecarboxaldehyde (Fc-CHO) with poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) doped inside CaCO(3) microparticles, followed by core removal. The PAH-Fc microcapsules had very thick shells with remnant PAH-Fc inside, leading to a robust capsule structure that is less collapsed in the dry… CONTINUE READING
