In this study, shell powder was modified by sodium stearate surface modifier for improving the compatibility of SP with polymer materials. The surface modifiers influence on the physical and chemical properties of SP were studied by scanning electron microscope(SEM), fourier infrared spectrum(FT-IR), surface contact angle meter, XRD diffraction analysis meter and other modern instruments and analysis method. The results showed that the surface modifier was successfully coupled to the shell powder surface. After surface modifier modification, the interfacial compatibility of the shell powder with polymer materials was effectively improved. The contact angle of shell powder surface increased from 73.5 ° to 110.8 °, along with the dosage of sodium stearate surface modifier was 4.0%. All results suggested that modified shell powder is promising for using as a reinforcement filler in polymer materials. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. Source

The microcapsules containing patchouli oil were prepared using a complex coacervation with chitosan and arabic gum as wall material, patchouli oil as the core material. The different factors influence on the microcapsule properties were investigated by scanning electron microscope, laser particle size analyzer, infrared spectrum and UV spectra. The best conditions for preparing patchouli oil microcapsules were confirmed as follows: the concentration of chitosan with low viscosity 0.5%, arabic gum 4%, and the ratio of wall material to core material was 2: 1. The pH value of the complex coacervation reaction was 4.5, and stirring speed was 800 r/min. The microcapsules were analyzed by Infrared spectral to confirm the patchouli oil had been successfully embedded in the microcapsules. The drug loading and encapsulation efficiency for patchouli was 20.7% and 67.2%, respectively. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. Source
