Amphiphilic copolymers, synthesized from poly (ethylene glycols) and various aliphatic diacids, which self assemble into nano-micellar aggregates in aqueous media, were used to develop controlled release (CR) formulations of imidacloprid [1-(6 chloro-3-pyridinyl methyl)-N- nitro imidazolidin-2- ylideneamine] using encapsulation technique. High solubilisation power and low critical micelle concentration (CMC) of these amphiphilic polymers may increase the efficacy of formulations. Formulations… Expand
Development of controlled release nanoformulations of carbendazim employing amphiphilic polymers and their bioefficacy evaluation against Rhizoctonia solani
The bioefficacy evaluation of developed formulations of carbendazim was done against plant pathogenic fungi Rhizoctonia solani by the poison food technique method and the release of maximum amount from developed formulations was dependent on the molecular weight of PEGs and was found to increase with increasing molecular weights.

Alkyl glycol chitosan derivatives for encapsulation and controlled release of rotenone
Rotenone is a hydrophobic organic compound with the excellent insecticidal property. However, its hydrophobicity and the short period of efficacy due to rapid degradation in the presence of UV lightExpand
Co-encapsulation of imidacloprid and lambda-cyhalothrin using biocompatible nanocarriers: Characterization and application.
Using the mixture of imidacloprid and lambda-cyhalothrin improves the residual effect over their use alone and can be a better alternative to conventional combination of these insecticides due to their more environmental friendliness. Expand
Physicochemical Characteristics and Slow Release Performances of Chlorpyrifos Encapsulated by Poly(butyl acrylate-co-styrene) with the Cross-Linker Ethylene Glycol Dimethacrylate.
The extent of sustainable release decreased with increasing content of BA, St, or chlorpyrifos in the oil phase, but an adequate degree of cross-linking with EGMDA increased the extent ofustainable release considerably, and higher levels ofCross-Linking with EGDMA reduced the extentof sustainable release.

Development of controlled release formulations of carbofuran and evaluation of their efficacy against Meloidogyne incognita.
A comparison of CR formulations with the commercial one showed an earlier degradation of carbofuran in the latter and relatively prolonged activity in the former, while with the rosin-yellow polymer, the dose could be reduced to half of its recommended dose for nematode control. Expand
Controlled release formulations of metribuzin: Release kinetics in water and soil
Amongst the CR formulations of metribuzin, the release in both water and soil was the fastest in CMC and slowest in PVC, and the CMC-KAO composite reduced the rate of release as compared to CMC alone. Expand
Controlled release of isoproturon, imidacloprid, and cyromazine from alginate-bentonite-activated carbon formulations.
It can be deduced that the use of bentonite and/or activated carbon sorbents reduces the release rate of the isoproturon and imidacloprid in comparison with the technical product and with alginate formulation without modifying agents. Expand
