Description: Modern adjuvants are made from complex synthetic formulations that are designed for specific purposes. Most have no toxic effect on the plants or the environment. In the United States, there are several hundred name brand adjuvants that have various effects on aquatic herbicides.
Description: Adjuvants are commonly used in agriculture to improve the performance of pesticides. ... Adjuvants for Enhancing Herbicide Performance. ... The aboveground portions of plants are covered by a continuous noncellular, nonliving membrane called cuticle (Figure 1). Cuticle is the first barrier that any herbicide must overcome to be effective.
Description: Chemtrade offers an extensive line of aluminum-based Vaccine Adjuvants. They are highly versatile and meet a broad range of pH, protein binding, and other vaccine requirements. In addition to our standard grades, Chemtrade can customize its Vaccine Adjuvants to meet the needs of specific vaccines.
Description: The waxy surfaces of many insects, fungi, and plants make it difficult for most water-based spray solutions to penetrate their target. To overcome this barrier, adjuvants have been developed. Adjuvants can determine how well a pesticide works but, when used inappropriately, they can cause crop damage.
Description: Spray adjuvants can play a major role in safe and effective pest control when used as recommended on the label. Although a single adjuvant may perform more than one function, no single product can solve every problem. As a result, many spray adjuvants are available, each formulated to solve problems associated with a particular type of application.
Description: group adjuvants by their function, as either activator adjuvants or utility adjuvants (see Box 1). Activator adjuvants work to enhance the activity of the herbicide, often by increasing rates of absorption of the herbicide into the target plant(s). Utility adjuvants, sometimes called spray
Description: Plant-based vaccine technologies involve the integration of the desired genes encoding the antigen protein for specific disease into the genome of plant tissues by various methods. Agrobacterium -mediated gene transfer and transformation via genetically modified plant virus are the common methods that have been used to produce effective vaccines.
Description: AGRICULTURAL SPRAY ADJUVANTS. James M. Witt Extension Chemist and Toxicologist Oregon State University. A pesticide adjuvant is broadly defined as any substance added to the spray tank, separate from the pesticide formulation, that will improve the performance of the pesticide.
Description: In immunology, an adjuvant is a substance that potentiates and/or modulates the immune responses to an antigen to improve them. The word "adjuvant" comes from the Latin word adiuvare, meaning to help or aid."An immunologic adjuvant is defined as any substance that acts to accelerate, prolong, or enhance antigen-specific immune responses when used in combination with specific vaccine antigens."
Description: Most adjuvants are chemicals, molecules or particles obtained from infectious agents or their derived toxins (e.g., FCA, monophosphoryl lipid A, CT-B), mammalian proteins involved in “danger signals” and even molecules or proteins from plants with immunomodulatory properties (31, 34). Although adjuvant mechanisms of action are still unclear ...
