  • Dow: High performance oil dispersion adjuvant development   2019-06-12

    Oil dispersion (OD) formulation is an emerging formulation in Ag industry, which is claimed as environmental friendly, better pesticide efficacy than water-based formulation. Because the continuous phase is oil, like methyl oleate, methyl soyate, it shows high affinity with plant leaves, thus providing better spreading, wetting and penetration performance. However, the existing OD products have common issues of inadequate long-term storage stability, phase separation and caking in the bottom after several months storage. This hinders the booming development of OD formulation. Therefore, it is of high importance to explore high performance adjuvants of emulsifier, dispersant and thickener, exclusively used in OD formulation, promoting the industry technology progress.
