Single crystal formation in core–shell capsules


This work extends the scope of microfluidic-based crystallization methods by introducing solid microcapsules. Hundreds of perfectly similar microcapsules were generated per second, allowing a fast screening of crystallization conditions. XRD analyses were performed directly on encapsulated single crystals demonstrating the potential of this process for the characterization of compounds, including screening polymorphism.
