Microemulsions (ME) are thermodynamically stable isotropic mixtures of oil, water, and surfactant; they would also be attractive as potential insecticidal products due to the high bioviability of the active ingredient, attributable to the small sizes of the oil drops. A laboratory study was conducted in order to compare the biological effect of oil in water(More)
The physicochemical characterization and residual insecticidal activity of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) nanoparticles containing essential oils (EOs) from geranium (Geranium sp.) and bergamot (Citrus reticulata L.) were evaluated against Blatella germanica for 1 year. The nanoparticles’ size increased during the storage time from <235 to <450 nm; the EO(More)
Industrial products require strict quality controls and many times these are related to the chemical composition. Traditional reference methods for doing these are expensive and require sophisticated equipment. Flow-Batch (FB) and Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) methodologies have been contributing to perform quality control in industrial processes.(More)
