Abstract

Perfume microcapsules have attracted a great deal of attention from a range of industries over the last decade due to the benefits of their incorporation into household products such as textiles, allowing the provision of a long-lasting release of pleasant odour to consumers. To realize this, it is important to understand the adhesion between microcapsules and fabric surfaces.
In this work, single perfume microcapsules were immobilised at the apex of a tipless atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilever probe, and the adhesion between the microcapsule and a cellulose film in HPLC water was investigated by AFM force measurements. The adhesion and how it is affected by the experimental conditions have been interpreted.
