I have a string '40°50'24', I want to separate the string at '&#176' and apostrophe between 50 and 24. Therefore, I am expecting 40, 50 and 24 in separate cells. But I am not able to separate the apostrophe using strsplit. Is there a way to do it?

You should repeat apostrophe to represent apostrophe in MATLAB, like:
>> S='I''m fine!'
S =
'I'm fine!'
So, regarding your question, please try the following:
>> strsplit(str,{'°',''''})
ans =
1×3 cell array
{'40'} {'50'} {'24'}

I prefer char(39) instead of ''''. As soon as you are searching for 2 quotes, char([39, 39]) is much better than ''''''.
