Slow Release
Polymers

Fertilizers

Recently, chelated fertilizers have been developed to increase the utilization efficiency of micronutrients, such as iron, manganese, zinc, copper, and nickel. The chemical chelators used in these products are relatively easily oxidized and often rapidly release the unchelated metal into the soil, thereby reducing the efficiency of these fertilizers.

Due to the controlled biodegradation of Periodic Products’ metal-polymer composites, incorporation of the Company’s novel composites into slow-release fertilizers will increase the utilization of micronutrients by plants, food crops, and other vegetation.

Pesticides

Copper, cadmium, cobalt, nickel, lead, zinc, iron, manganese, and other metals are common components of everyday pesticides. Often, rain, irrigation systems, and other water sources wash these metals into the soil, thereby reducing their effectiveness and producing unintended environmental consequences.

Periodic Product’s metal-polymer composites exhibit controlled biodegradation, making them ideal components for a new class of modern, efficient pesticide agents.

Pharmaceuticals

Transition metal complexes are key components of many pharmaceuticals. Regulating the release of these complexes into the human body is associated with greater efficacy, lower toxicity, and better patient compliance. Improving the release kinetics of these metals is a constant goal of pharmaceutical scientists.    

Periodic Product’s metal-polymer composites are ideal components for new classes of modern anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, and anti-diabetic treatments; dietary supplements; diagnostic agents; and cosmetic preparations.
