Natural resources for green adjuvants
Molecularly dissolved cellulose can act as an emulsifier for oil-in-water emulsions. Sunflower and soybean oil can also be used as resources for new emulsifiers. These and other examples of natural resources for green adjuvants are highlighted in the just published November/December issue of Adjuvants & Formulations.

Patents in brief
A Russian chemist has patented a range of agrochemical microcapsule and nanocapsule formulations. Adjuvants & Formulations furthermore contains information on micronutrient, biostimulant and insecticidal seed treatment formulations. This issue also informs you about new solvents and other patent pending adjuvants and formulations.
