  • Publication number: 20140249032
    Abstract: In agricultural practice it is known to use emulsifiable oils (commonly referred to a Crop Oil Concentrates, COC) as bioefficacy enhancers for pesticides, especially herbicides. Cationic surfactants are widely known to be particularly effective bio-active enhancers for herbicides, especially for glyphosate-type herbicides. The present invention includes two novel aspects: 1) While the vast majority of COCs are petroleum-based paraffinic oils or esterified seed oils, this invention embodies a new oil phase, a hydrocarbon oil such exemplified by EXXON-MOBIL'S D-130, which when combined with the surfactants described herein, exhibits surprising enhancement of herbicidal activity in field tests; and 2) COC's are designed to form stable emulsions in water. The combination of cationic surfactants and phosphate esters in this invention not only form very stable emulsions in water, but, surprisingly, also form extremely stable emulsions in concentrated liquid fertilizers, including 32-0-0 fertilizer.

  • Publication number: 20030045431
    Abstract: A herbicidal solution contains from 30% by weight to saturation of a water soluble glyphosate salt and from 8 to 20% by weight of surfactant comprising from 10 to 100% by weight based on the total weight of surfactant of an amphoteric surfactant and from 0 to 90% by weight based on the total weight of surfactant of ether carobxylate, said solution containing less than 0.035 % by weight of sodium ion. A pre-blended surfactant concentrate contains from 10 to 70% by weight ether carboxylate, from 20 to 80% by weight of low salt amphoteric surfactant and from 10 to 50% by weight of solvent.

  • Patent number: 6482866
    Abstract: Viscoelastic surfactant based aqueous fluid systems useful as thickening agents in various applications, e.g. to suspend particles produced during the excavation of geologic formations. The surfactants are zwitterionic/amphoteric surfactants such as dihydroxyl alkyl glycinate, alkyl ampho acetate or propionate, alkyl betaine, alkyl amidopropyl betaine and alkylimino mono- or di-propionates derived from certain waxes, fats and oils. The thickening agent is used in conjunction with an inorganic water-soluble salt or organic additive such as phthalic acid, salicylic acid or their salts.

  • Publication number: 20020160916
    Abstract: The invention pertains to new composition and a method for increasing the solubility of various agricultural compounds in water at a low pH. The compounds included in this patent are typically not soluble at pH ranges less than 7 to produce commercially viable liquid concentrates. This method requires the use of amine-containing surfactants and organic acids to lower the pH of various compounds and also keep them soluble in water.

  • Publication number: 20020160918
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are surfactants useful for improving the bioefficacy of herbicides. A surfactant according to the invention may comprise: (i) phosphate monoesters of tallow amine ethoxylates, alone or in combination with phosphate diesters of tallow amine ethoxylates, or (ii) alkoxylated phosphate monoesters of tallow amine ethoxylates, alone or in combination with alkoxylated phosphate diesters of tallow amine ethoxylates. The present invention also provides for herbicide compositions that contain the surfactants of the present invention. The herbicide compositions comprise a herbicidal active ingredient, a surfactant of the present invention, and optionally, one or more formulation aids. The herbicide compositions of the present invention unexpectedly have a reduced tendency to cause eye and skin irritation. The present invention additionally provides for a method of controlling unwanted weeds or vegetation using the herbicide compositions of the present invention.
