Research and development activities fucus mainly on tree-friendly trunk injection preparations consisting of solutions able to solubilize and stabilize active ingredients of natural origin.
The stabilization of the active ingredients are achieved by means of supramolecular chemistry by preparing inclusion complexes or by using their delivery with nano-structured systems. After preliminary in vitro trials, solutions are tested for phytotoxicity and absorption and distribution rate during and after injection in both leaves and soil.
The formulation is made to have the highest efficacy with the lowest amount of active ingredient. Tests are performed both in vitro and in planta, by monitoring the amount of active substance transferred to the leaves or soil.
