Glossary

Coating Process of forming the core/shell structures for nanocapsules, which may differ depending on different synthetic methods.

Core/shell structures Special structures of a nanocapsule, where the shell can be referred to as a membrane, a wall, a covering, or a coating, while the internal core can be defined as payload, core, encapsulant, fill, active ingredient, IP, or internal ingredient.

Nanoencapsulations Processes of encapsulating/coating nanoparticles to form nanocapsules.

Nanocapsules Capsules of nanometer size (i.e., 10-9 m), normally composed of a core and a shell that are made of different materials.

Nanoparticles Particles of nanometer size (i.e., 10-9 m), normally without a core/shell structure.
