  • Patent number: 8568774
    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.

  • Publication number: 20130252812
    Abstract: Tankmix additive concentrates containing a phosphate ester and/or polymeric surfactant and a triglyceride fatty acid ester and the use of aqueous herbicide spray mixtures incorporating such tankmix additive concentrates are described. The tankmix additive concentrates described herein include from 1 to 50 weight percent of a phosphate ester surfactant, a polymeric surfactant, or mixtures thereof, and from 1 to 90 weight percent of a triglyceride fatty acid ester. The tankmix additive concentrates form a stable emulsion upon dilution into a pesticide spray mixture.

  • Publication number: 20130203601
    Abstract: Stabilized liquid agrochemical compositions are provided that comprise flowable, aqueous dispersion concentrates comprising a) a continuous aqueous liquid phase; b) at least one dispersed, solid phase comprising a dispersion of polymer particles having a mean particle size of at least one micron, wherein the outside surfaces of the particles comprise a colloidal solid material and wherein the particles have at least one agrochemically active ingredient distributed therein, optionally a non-porous particulate mineral that acts as a diffusion barrier to slow the release of the active ingredient, and optionally at least one non-cross-linkable mobile chemical such that the extraction of this chemical from the disperse phase renders it porous in a manner that allows the active ingredient to diffuse out. The colloidal solid is used to stabilize the polymenzable resin in an emulsion state during preparation.
