Project summary

Microfluidics has been widely used for making various kinds of hierarchical materials such as complex emulsions, microarticles, microcapsules etc with uniform size and precisely controlled properties due to their superior capabilities in generating monodisperse emulsions, precisely controlling the process inside droplets. We have developed microfluidic approaches for making simple and complex emulsions, hollow spheres and hierarchical particles with unique structure and surface morphology, which have great potential in drug delivery and controlled release. Projects are available for developing various hierarchical microstructures for controlled release of active components for different applications.
