Core-shell structures offer a wide range of uses in biology, chemistry, medicine, pharmaceutics, cosmetics, and industrial applications, such as the food processing industry, thanks to their effective encapsulation qualities. [1] We now have unparalleled control and flexibility over the creation of emulsion droplets by microfluidic devices. Due to the expertise needed to create and manage these technologies, this is still restricted to specialized laboratories. [1] This report will briefly introduce the application of core-shell structures, advantages, and challenges of microfluidic devices before, and talk about the improved device design which helps create and solidify successful core-shell structures with different sizes and diverse materials.
