As the impact of climate change increasingly impacts on the ability to produce sufficient food and feed using finite land resources agrochemicals play a vital role ensuring that yields and quality are maintained and support sustainability.
The agrochemical industry continues to be very innovative and Alcohols Limited can support this by supplying high purity, high quality solvents for formulators active ingredients.
Solvents are used within the agrochemical industries to dissolve active ingredients. The selection of solvent depends on the active ingredient structure, water solubility and application technology. Low odour, low toxicity and low vapour pressure can also be key factors when selecting appropriate solvent.
Solvents are also used as building blocks in the production of agrochemicals.
- Hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, with low naphthalene content
- Monopropylene glycol
- Isopropyl alcohol (IPA)
