New pesticide formulation development: material synthesis, new formulation preparation

Neem seed extract as natural pesticide, has low toxicity to the environment and it is efficient to control insect damage in agriculture. Silica nanoparticles are used to protect neem seed extract from its shortcomings such as poor UV light stability and poor rain fastness. The new silica based formulation is a very promising long-term efficacy pesticide formulation.

Jianye Fu achieved his bachelor and master degree from China University of Petroleum (Beijing). His major was chemical engineering. He is now focusing on material synthesis and new pesticide formulation development.

Jianye Fu is currently doing his PhD under supervision of Professor Michael (Chengzhong) Yu.
