The increasing world-wide demand for food has prompted the development of efficient and environmentally friendly pesticide formulations. In this article, we have prepared CMC-g-PRSG carrier based on two compounds from natural materials carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and rosin (RS). The model pesticide avermectin (AVM) was encapsulated through hydrophobic interaction, and self-assembled to form nanopesticide AVM@CMC-g-PRSG with an average particle size of 167 nm. Read More
