The new method is called micro-encapsulation, where particles are suspended in a biodegradable polymer coating. The microcapsules, that are as tiny as pins, can bear a molecule that requires protection or restrained release.

The process is widely used in manufacturing plant food, stain remover, and even scratch-and-sniff perfume ads, where scent is released upon scratching a treated paper.
