In response to current global interest in nanotechnology, Dr. Thies has developed a three day hands-on lab/lecture course focused exclusively on nanocapsules. It covers nanocapsule formation, preparation, and isolation. The course is format is modeled after his successful How to Make Microcapsules Short Course.
Dr. Thies has taught this three day 'How-to-Make Microcapsules™' short course annually since 1981. It continues to evolve in order to keep pace with the steadily changing field of microencapsulation. It is the longest running lab/lecture course in the world devoted exclusively to the hands-on teaching of students on the synthesis of microcapsules by a variety of different techniques.
Due to the high interest in Dr. Thies’ expertise in Complex Coacervation Thies Technology now offers a three day, hands-on lecture and lab covering this encapsulation methodology. Topics will include terminology, solution preparation, lab experiments, and characterization.
