Preparation of Imidacloprid Microemulsion and its Formula Optimization


Article Preview

Based on the combinational method of pseudo ternary phase diagram and orthogonal design and taking the study on the imidacloprid microemulsion as example, the method of preparing the pesticide microemulsion was creatively brought forward to remedy the situation of the lack of the research on compounding the microemulsion. The experimental results and the date analysis show that our method is simple and effective, and were expected to provide new ideas and technical methods for the development of pesticide microemulsion.
