Microemulsion (ME) and Nanoemulsion( NE)
Microemulsions/ Nanoemulsions are water based formulations and are thermodynamically stable over a wide temperature range due to very fine droplet size, usually between 1-5 microns ( Microemulsion) 1-50 nanometers ( Nanoemulsion).
- Water based formulations
- Good water dilution and application.
- Good bio-efficacy at lower doses due to fine droplet size.
- Long shelf life &stability.
Business potential in India and Abroad: The developed ME and NE formulations may have good business potential as user & environment friendly safer alternative to existing EC, EW formulations.
Environmental aspects: The developed formulation are water base formulations and contain no or minimum amount of organic solvents. The environmental contamination is reduced as lower doses provide adequate bio-efficacy. The formulations are environmental friendly alternative to existing solvent base formulations.
Development status: The present technology is laboratory model.
Transfer forms: Know-how of bench scale level.
Performance guarantee available: Yes
Developed ME formulation: Pyrithiobac Na + Quizalofop-P- Ethyl ME, Chloryprifos 5, 10 & 15 ME, PermethrinNE
New Formulations:New and tailor made formulations may be developed as per specific requirements
