Two types of polymeric microcapsules were fabricated through the deposition of polymer onto liquid droplets. The microstructures were synthesized either by chemical or photochemical polymerization of pyrrole. In the first step an oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsion was prepared and the liquid droplets were subsequently adsorbed onto glass or quartz slides. Then the polymer was deposited onto the surface of the droplets which resulted in the formation of polymeric capsules.
