    Abstract

    In an attempt to investigate alternative pesticide delivery systems, a three phase approach for the formulation of pesticide microemulsions was developed. Also described are typical surfactants and solvents that can be used in this formulation work. In addition, an explanation of the use of ternary phase diagrams is included to assist the formulator. The development of a 0.5% Chlorpyrifos pesticide microemulsion is described.
