  • Publication number: 20200367498
    Abstract: This invention relates to pyrimidine derivatives, to compositions comprising the pyrimidine derivatives, to methods of making and using these compositions, and to the use of the pyrimidine derivatives as adjuvants, particularly for agrochemical use. In particular, the present invention relates to compositions comprising the pyrimidine derivatives selected from emulsifiable concentrates (EC), emulsions in water (EW), suspensions of particles in water (SC), soluble liquids (SL), capsule suspensions (CS), suspensions of particles with an emulsion (SE), dispersion concentrates (DC), suspensions of particles in oil (OD), water dispersible granules (WG), soluble granules (SG) and wettable powders (WP).

  • Publication number: 20200068879
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods of reducing the viscosity of an aqueous agrochemical concentrate comprising a) an adjuvant selected from an alkoxylated aliphatic acid, an alkoxylated aliphatic alcohol, an alkoxylated aliphatic amide and an alkoxylated aliphatic amine, wherein the concentration of adjuvant in the aqueous agrochemical concentrate is at least 50 g/l; the method comprising including b) a compound selected from: i. an aryl sulphonate; ii. an aliphatic mono alcohol; iii. an aliphatic polyol comprising at least four contiguous carbon atoms; and iv. anaryl alcohol; in the aqueous agrochemical concentrate; wherein the aqueous agrochemical concentrate comprises an agrochemical active ingredient. The invention also relates to the agrochemical concentrates and methods of using the agrochemical concentrates for controlling or preventing infestation of plants by phytopathogenic microorganisms.

  • Publication number: 20190254275
    Abstract: This invention relates to a mixture of an alkyl polyglucoside with a (biological performance improving) adjuvant which is a non-ionic surfactant, the mixture improving the biological performance of an agrochemical. The biological performance effect of the alkyl polyglucoside is poorer than the partner adjuvant but the biological performance effect of the mixture is as good as that delivered by a much larger amount of that better, partner adjuvant alone.

  • Patent number: 10085442
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition comprising an aqueous continuous phase; a first dispersed phase which comprises styrene-maleimide copolymer particles; and a second dispersed phase which is either oil droplets, suspended particles or a capsule suspension; and to use of those compositions to control agricultural pests or diseases. It also relates to use of such compositions where rainfastness is important.

  • Publication number: 20140271758
    Abstract: Provided are compositions comprising a collection of overcoated particles wherein each of the overcoated particles comprises a first coating and a second coating. In one embodiment, the first coating comprises water-insoluble material, for example a fatty compound or a waxy material. In another embodiment, the second coating comprises a water-insoluble polymer or water-resistant film, wherein the water-insoluble polymer of the second coating is different than the water-insoluble material of the first coating. Also provided is a slurry comprising water and overcoated powders provided herein. Also provided is a method of contacting plants or plant parts with a composition or slurry provided herein.
