Abstract

Agriculture, the back bone of world's economy was facing critical problems due to repeated indiscriminate use of commercial pesticides in field's which led to environmental pollution. Nano pesticides are the best way to commercial pesticides. The penetration power of nano pesticides is more and control different diseases. Here in this communication we reported a novel nano mancozeb formulation using polypropyleneglycol as encapsulating agent. The size of the encapsulated nano mancozeb was obtained by using pade-laplace dispersion. The size distribution of nano mancozeb is obtained at 40-80 nm. Characterization was done by using UV-Visible spectroscopy, Fourier transform Infrared spectroscopy, Scanning electron microscope and Transmission electron microscopy. The bio activity nature of nano formulated mancozeb is many times more when compared to the commercial mancozeb.

Keywords: Mancozeb, nano-formulation, poly propylene glycol, bio-assay
