Formulation science paves the way for new and improved products

Our client asked:

Sagentia Innovation’s client identified a natural insecticide that is safe for humans and environmentally friendly. It is also chemically unstable, making it challenging to deliver in a format that provides long-lasting protection.

The project story:

We surveyed the academic literature and conducted a broad range of experiments to determine:

  • the conditions under which the insecticide degrades
  • the mechanism for the degradation and its kinetics
  • possible formulations for reducing the rate of degradation
  • This included developing analytical methods (for HPLC-UV, HPLC-MS, GC-EDS), data analysis methods and a mathematical model of delivery rates

Results: deliverables and outcomes

  • Rapid (four months) analysis of an issue that is key to a major new product
  • Elucidation of the fundamental science which leads to specific formulation solutions and a faster means of improving related formulations
