Biocidal performance of acrylated glyphosate in a model photopolymerizable coating formulation
Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences
Acrylated glyphosate was blended into a model polyolacrylate formulation and copolymerized. The resulting copolymer retains herbicidal activity similar to that of the monomer as indicated by the results of biological tests. No release of biocide from the coating was observed. The potential value of these biologically active acrylic formulations as biofouling compositions has been demonstrated by field trials. © The Royal Society of Chemistry and Owner Societies.
