This issue of High-tech Materials TOE highlights the use of macro and microencapsulation in the food and cosmetics industry. A microencapsulation process to preserve antioxidants in pomegrante juice has been captured in this issue. A galenical microcapsule that aids in protecting the active ingredient from oxidation, photo-oxidation, and moisture has also been featured. The issue also consists of an innovation on a highly scalable Spinning Disk encapsulation process. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
