1. A method of preparing a controlled or delayed release pharmaceutical composition comprising:

  • i. a plurality of coated particles of a size that is from 0.1 μ

    m to 50 μ

    m, said coated particles having a solid core comprising a biologically active substance, said solid core being enclosed by one or more metal oxide materials; and

    ii. a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier,the method comprising the sequential steps of;

    (1) applying an initial coating of at least one metal oxide to said solid cores in an atomic layer deposition reactor;

    (2) discharging the coated particles from the reactor and subjecting the coated particles to agitation to disaggregate particle aggregates formed during step (1);

    (3) reintroducing the disaggregated, coated particles from step (2) into an atomic layer deposition reactor and applying a further coating of at least one metal oxide to the reintroduced particles;

    (4) optionally repeating steps (2) and (3) one or more times to increase total thickness of the one or more metal oxide materials that enclose said solid core; and

    (5) admixing said coated particles obtained from step (3) or step (4) with said pharmaceutically acceptable carrier to form said pharmaceutical composition.
