Drying of agrochemical droplets on a model surface: co-localization of adjuvant and active ingredient
A systemic active ingredient and the adjuvant(s) in the formulation have to end up in the same place on the leaf surface when a droplet of spray dries on the leaf to be effective, as is widely believed, though firm evidence is lacking. The behaviour of drying agrochemicals is studied using model formulations of a systemic fungicide with a nonionic, a cationic or an amphoteric adjuvant.

Interaction between plant cuticular compounds, active ingredients, and adjuvants
Adjuvants like surface active agents and oils interact with the plant cuticle. Cuticles are composed of components of different physicochemical properties, including aliphatic and alicyclic wax fractions. Our focus is on the interactions of active ingredients and adjuvants with these components, because there have been no studies on the contribution of these wax fractions to the cuticular permeability of active ingredients.
