Аннотация: Different technologies to prepare long term pesticide forms include polymer coating, preparing composites and encapsulating pesticides in nanoparticles. A simple and low-cost method was proposed to obtain slow-release formulations by co-extrusion of a pesticide with a biodegradable polymer at a temperature above the melting points Показать полностьюof both components. A herbicide metribuzin and low-melting polyester poly-ε-caprolactone were chosen for this work. Formulations containing 10%, 20%, and 40% herbicide were prepared. During 7 days of their exposition in water, it was released from 81% to 96% of initially loaded metribuzin; the highest release was detected for 40%-loaded forms. Biodegradation of the constructs and pesticide release were further studied in the model soil. Degradation rates of the specimens increased with an increase in pesticide content, from 9% to 20% over 14 weeks for the 10%/20%-loaded and the 40%-loaded specimens, respectively. The release of metribuzin reached, respectively, 37–38% and 55%. The herbicide content in soil was lower due to its partial degradation in soil; it reached 23–25% and 33%, respectively, from initially loaded into the polymer matrix. Release kinetics of metribuzin in water as in soil best fitted the First-order model. The used approach is promising for obtaining long-term release formulations for soil applications.
