Characteristics and Release Behavior of Sodium Alginate Microencapsulation Containing Cinnamon Oil

Abstract:

Article Preview

Microencapsulation technology is widely used in many industries recently because the stability of core material can be improved and the release characteristics can be modified. In this investigation, cinnamon oil was microencapsulated by simple coacervation. The size distribution is narrow and the mean diameter is 53.79 μm. The surface morphology of the resultant microcapsules was also characterized scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed that the rates of cinnamon oil released from microencapsulation were not only affected by relative humidity in the microenvironment around microencapsulated powder, but also affected by the temperature.
