  • Patent number: 9422313
    Abstract: Methods include formation of 4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronic acid pinacol esters. The method comprises contacting a 1-chloro-3-fluoro-2-substituted benzene with an alkyl lithium to form a lithiated 1-chloro-3-fluoro-2-substituted benzene. The lithiated 1-chloro-3-fluoro-2-substituted benzene is contacted with an electrophilic boronic acid derivative to form a 4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronate. The 4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronate is reacted with an aqueous base to form a (4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenyl)trihydroxyborate. The (4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenyl)trihydroxyborate is reacted with an acid to form a 4 chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronic acid. The 4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronic acid is reacted with 2,3-dimethyl-2,3-butanediol to form 4-chloro-2-fluoro-3-substituted-phenylboronic acid pinacol esters .

    Abstract: A homogeneous gas-evolving composition is provided that includes an acid, a gas-evolving acid neutralizing agent, and at least one of an inorganic carbonate, inorganic bicarbonate, alkaline peroxide, or alkaline azide. A water-soluble desiccant is homogeneously intermixed with the acid and the gas-evolving acid neutralizing agent. The desiccant is present in an amount able to absorb ambient moisture equivalent to at least 0.01 total weight percent of the composition before gas evolution of more than 50% of the theoretical gas evolution available from the composition. To confer storage stability, the acid, the gas-evolving acid neutralizing agent, and water-soluble desiccant cumulatively have a water content of less than 1 total weight percent water. Through appropriate selection of a desiccant or inclusion of a surfactant foaming agent, the composition foams upon drenching with water. The composition is particularly well suited for consistent usage of glyphosate herbicide.

  • Patent number: 8420572
    Abstract: Conventional fungicidal compositions have had practical problems such that either a preventive effect or a curative effect is inadequate, the residual effect tends to be inadequate, or the controlling effect against plant diseases tends to be inadequate depending upon the application site, and a fungicidal composition to overcome such problems has been desired. The present invention provides a fungicidal composition containing a carboxylic acid amide derivative of the formula (I) or a salt thereof, as an active ingredient: wherein A is phenyl which may be substituted, benzodioxolanyl which may be substituted, or benzodioxanyl which may be substituted; B is 2- or 3-pyridyl which may be substituted; each of R1 and R2 is alkyl, or R1 and R2 may together form a 3- to 6-membered saturated carbon ring, provided that when B is 3-pyridyl which may be substituted, A is phenyl substituted by at least two substituents.
