      .2 Clays and Pesticides

      Nir, Shlomo; El-Nahhal, Yasser; Undabeytia, Tomas; Rytwo, Giora; Polubesova, Tamara; Mishael, Yael Golda; Rabinovitz, U; Rubin, Baruch (Elsevier, 2006)
      Publisher Summary This chapter describes clay-based formulations of pesticides, whose design was to solve environmental and economical problems. The chapter focuses on herbicides—the leading type of pesticide used. Herbicides ...
    • Clays, Clay Minerals, and Pesticides

      Nir, Shlomo; El-Nahhal, Yasser; Undabeytia, Tomas; Rytwo, Giora; Polubesova, Tamara; Mishael, Yael Golda; Rabinovitz, Onn; Rubin, Baruch (Elsevier, 2013)
      Design and test of clay-based formulations of pesticides for solving environmental and economical problems are described. Organoclays were mainly designed to promote the adsorption of neutral and hydrophobic pesticides and ...

      Optimization of adsorption of hydrophobic herbicides on montmorillonite preadsorbed by monovalent organic cations: interaction between phenyl rings

      Nir, Shlomo; Undabeytia, Tomas; Yaron-Marcovich, Dana; El-Nahhal, Yasser; Polubesova, Tamara; Serban, Carina; Rytwo, Giora; Lagaly, Gerhard; Rubin, Baruch (American Chemical Society, 2000)
      This study aimed to optimize organo-clay formulations for reduction of leaching of the herbicides alachlor, metolachlor, and norflurazon, which include a phenyl ring in the structure. The adsorbed amounts of herbicides ...

      Organo-clay formulations of pesticides: reduced leaching and photodegradation

      El-Nahhal, Yasser; Undabeytia, Tomas; Polubesova, Tamara; Mishael, Yael Golda; Nir, Shlomo; Rubin, Baruch (Elsevier, 2001)
      Adsorption of organic cations on several clay minerals is reviewed with an emphasis on the effect of ionic strength and modeling. The clay exchanged with suitable organic cations forms a basis for ecologically acceptable ...
