Introduction

One area of great interest in soft matter is encapsulation. With applications in almost all types of industrial domains, from the oil industry to food packaging, efficient storage of gases and liquid in solid containers is of tremendous technological and economical importance. Furthermore, encapsulation of active ingredients such as drugs, proteins, nutrients, or vitamins is essential for a myriad of applications, from drug delivery to agrichemicals.
