We used cationized cellulose nanofibrils (CCNF)-stabilized Pickering emulsions (PE) as templates, and the electrostatic interactions were induced by adding the oxidized cellulose nanofibrils (OCNF) at the oil/water interface to form sustainable microcapsules (MCs). The oppositely charged cellulose nanofibrils enhanced the solidity of interfaces allowing the encapsulation of Nile red (NR) dye in sunflower oil droplets. This dataset provides the raw data of the dye release study from these MCs under different conditions, such as through diffusion, centrifugation and mechanical stirring at various pH environments.
