With recent advancement in droplet microfluidics for both microdroplet encapsulation and fission, it is of paramount importance to understand the flow physics for both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids in microdroplet encapsulation and fission as the development of the field is approaching to its maturity. The chapter aims to review and discuss the fluid flow behavior of the multiphase system, mathematical models as well as the fundamental phenomena driving force of microdroplet encapsulation and fission multiphase system. Together, the recent advances in technologies that enable fabrication and application of droplets encapsulation and fission from both Newtonian and non Newtonian microfluidic multiphase system will be reviewed as well.
