Abstract

Disclosed is a toner composition suitable for the development of images in electrophotographic processes employing microwave fusing for effecting the fixing of images generated by these processes. The encapsulated liquid toner composition selected comprises a non-conductive and non-polarized liquid encapsulated in a highly microwave absorptive shell. The shell materials may be selected from any known encapsulating toner shell materials, modified by an additive comprising a conductive OF polarized material, such as a conductive plastic, a ferrite, or any other suitable conductive material. Preferably the encapsulation shell material is of a "quick thermal release" type, with a sharp, relatively low melting point.
