Abstract

A novel type of melamine formaldehyde microcapsule with a desirable barrier has been used to encapsulate water soluble ingredients, including potassium chloride (KCl) and allura red (dye) as models of an inorganic salt and organic molecule, respectively, via a facile method, and it has shown a sustained release of KCl and allura red for 12 h and 10 days in aqueous environment, respectively.
