This chapter introduces some of the common instrumental analysis and characterization methods for evaluation of nanocapsules and nanoencapsulated ingredients in term of their morphology, size distribution, surface charge, appearance, physicochemical properties, stability, and their microenvironment. These techniques can be used for confirming anticipated properties of produced nanocapsules, besides they could correlate nanocapsule behavior to their physicochemical and functional properties. Monitoring qualitative ...
