Abstract

The usefulness and effectiveness of polymers in pesticide applications is shown in this literature review covering from 1976 to 1987. Pesticides have been physically incorporated in the polymer matrix; release has been by desorption, by true solution movement through the polymer matrix, by leaching, by breaking of microencapsulated droplets, by flow through hollow fiber tubes, and by chemically breaking the polymer bonds. Pesticides have also been chemically bonded in a polymer formulation either before or after polymerization; their release has been accommodated through breakup of cross-linking bonds, through breakup of the main polymer backbone, and by hydrolysis of the pendant chain. Sometimes pesticidal action is effective without polymer degradation. Polymer interaction with pesticide formulations has also been shown in flocculation control, spray-drift control, and in devices utilizing this concept (leg bands, ear tags, plastic strips and mulches). References have been cited showing either practical or theoretical use. Some tables and figures have been presented to show this usefulness and efficacy.
