Determination of Synthesis and Characterization of Nano-Acetamiprid: New Plant Safeguard Nanomaterial

Nanomaterials are one form of material that is currently being used to minimise environmental pollution around the world. Nanopesticides improve efficacy, durability, and reduce the amount of active ingredient in pesticides. Quick disintegration in soil or plant, targeted distribution, apparent solubility, and controlled release are all potential goals of nanotechnology in pesticides. The author described a neonicatonoid pesticide known as Nano-acetamiprid, which is widely used to combat fungal infections in many crops such as cotton, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, and pome, among others. Nano-acetamiprid decreases toxicity in agricultural areas by being highly active at low concentrations. The author described a simple strategy for plant disease control utilising a novel Nano-acetamiprid and subsequent characterisation of the encapsulated complex employing polycaprolactone as an encapsulated agent. Dynamic light scattering (DLS), ultraviolet spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterise nano-acetamiprid encased particles (SEM). The maximum absorption spectra of formed at 421 nm and unformulated pesticide at 520 nm were examined to determine the development and stability of nanoencapsulated acetamiprid pesticide. The size distribution was found to be between 40 and 50 nm. The bioactivity test was carried out on a variety of Aspergillus niger strains. When compared to the original parental particles, the performance of nano particles was many times more effective. When compared to regular commercial acetamiprid, Nano-bio-assay acetamiprid’s yields better findings.
