Insecticidal soaps and oils

Soaps and oils used for insect control have similarities to adjuvants used to improve pesticide performance. Adjuvants & Formulations pays attention to the agrochemical use of soaps and oils and presents in a nutshell the current state of the art.


In this issue three free apps that can be used to quantify spray coverage based on water-sensitive spray cards using image analysis.

Patents in brief

BASF has found a way to stabilise oil dispersion formulations without the use of thickeners. Battelle UK has developed a structured surfactant system to combine a water-soluble active ingredient with a wholly or partially insoluble active ingredient. Nouryon has found that alkyl polyglycerylamine surfactants outperform the well-known alkylamine ethoxylates in concentrated formulations of herbicides such as 2,4-D salt, dicamba salt, glyphosate salt and glufosinate salt.

Adjuvants & Formulations also reports about activities of other companies as well as universities, such as:

  • Rheology modifiers for highly ionic compositions and formulations of multivalent cations
  • Algae-based oil dispersion formulation
  • Four different fluindapyr formulations

And further

  • Challenging the formulator
  • UV-responsive surfactants for autonomous regulation of droplet evaporation
  • Tunable electrospun seed coatings made of biodegradable nanofibers
  • Attract and kill onion fly
  • Adjuvant and formulation news from the annual meetings of the Plant Health 2020 - APS Annual Meeting and the ACS Fall 2020 National Meeting & Exposition.
