The goal of the development of the current formulation based on 1R-trans Phenothrin and Prallethrin was to show how the microencapsulation can be applied to control the release rate in form of Capsule Suspension (CS) versus “free” non-encapsulated form, therefore to obtain a safer, more sustainable and less toxic biocidal product for its use in household or certain agricultural areas. In this paper, we primarily present the analytical data for the determination of the release rate by applying our microencapsulation technology versus the release of the free material including the biological data for the residual efficacy. In general, this approach represents an effective tool to describe the characteristics of the microcapsule wall in our CS formulation. The release rate was quantified by adopting the Franz cell diffusion method (OECD Test Guideline 428) in order to provide information on release of the active in CS form by using a membrane with a pore size of 0.20 µm.
