Microencapsulation and Particle Coating

  November 01, 2007  
The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ
February 11-13, 2008

Who Should Attend
The course should be of value to those working in microencapsulation, as well as to those in industry and research laboratories, who would profit from a thorough presentation and discussion of the many techniques and characteristics of the microcapsules formed from them. It should be of particular interest to personnel in the following industries:
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Chemical
  • Food
  • Bioengineering
  • Cosmetic
  • Agricultural
  • Consumer Products

This program will provide an up-to-date assessment of available encapsulation techniques. Each lecturer will present the basic chemical and physical principles of their processes, as well as a discussion of specific techniques and applications. The aim of the program is to provide an understanding of the unique advantages and difficulties of each major encapsulation technique. Emphasis will be placed on proven techniques, results, and actual applications in various industries. The instructors, all of whom are recognized experts in their areas, will present the latest available information regarding the processes in which they specialize. The lectures are structured to encourage open discussions between lecturers and participants.

Organized by: The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. James D. Oxley; Senior Research Scientist, Department of Microencapsulation, Nanomaterials, and Process Engineering, Southwest Research Institute
