Following the resurgence of interest in particle-stabilised or Pickering emulsions recently, the preparation of capsules from such templates has become feasible. We review some of the recent activity in this area and focus on both the methods used to reinforce the particle shell and the applications of these novel capsules, which may be empty or liquid-filled. The methods reported include interfacial polymerisation or crystallisation, interfacial cross-linking, the use of a sacrificial template, formation of polymer layers, gelation and evaporation from multiple emulsions. Potential applications are in the areas of wastewater treatment, perfume encapsulation, drug/dye release and as self-healing coatings.
