Abstract
Determination of the mechanical properties of urea-formaldehyde (UF) microcapsules is extremely important. In this study, UF microcapsules were made by using in situ polymerization method. The diameter and thickness of UF microcapsules were characterized by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In addition, the elastic property of UF microcapsules, such as Young's modulus, was computed by performing nanoindentation using a diamond plate indenter and plate and shell theory. Results showed that the mean diameter and thickness of the microcapsules were 194.2 m and 8.3 m, respectively. And the mean results of Young's modulus were 0.86GPa, 0.66GPa and 0.73GPa.
