Particle Surface Modification Technologies for Improving Properties and Applications

This short course will introduce interested agrochemical, materials and pharmaceutical technologists to the several methodologies that have been developed to modify the surfaces of particulate matter of many compositions, shapes and sizes. The content serves as a survey to encourage the audience to delve more deeply into concepts appropriate to individual interest. Included are examples of microencapsulation processes as well as methods employed to covalently attach various molecular functionalities to core surfaces. The majority of the methods are scientifically mature and result in deposition of the coating material onto the exterior of a core. Examples of recently published methods are included
