New model simulates diffusion of hydrophilic ionic agrochemicals through cuticle
A new theoretical model simulates the penetration of hydrophilic ionic agrochemicals through a plant’s cuticle. The sophisticated model is validated against experimental data from penetration studies using isolated astomatous cuticles. The model may be the prelude to interactive software for in silico research and the develop­ment of improved agrochemical formulations. Adjuvants & Formulations presents a practical discussion of this model.

Patents in brief
American formulators seek patent protection for thickeners as ‘structuring agent’ in agrochemical mixtures with liquid starter fertilisers that are high in phosphate. Adjuvants & Formulations also reports about novel and improved surfactants and surfactant compositions, solvents and solvent systems. Another recurring theme in the patent literature is the development of contemporary formulations for classical and old active ingredients. In this issue also news about a new crystal polymorph of an oxazole herbicide, about new rheological agents for concentrated liquid formulations and new adjuvants for glyphosate compositions.
