Abstract: This work was conducted to develop and evaluate new polymer compounds containing pendant herbicide substituents with the ultimate purpose of producing effective, economical, and environmentally safe controlled release aquatic herbicides. The synthesis of one of the most promising controlled-release systems prepared and evaluated in this study, i. e., an hydroxy-terminated, low-molecular-weight 2,4-D/Poly GMA adduct, was successively scaled-up to commercial levels. However, the processing of the adduct solution as obtained from the reaction mixture was difficult. A method must be developed to remove the solvent before the procedure can be used to prepare material for field tests.
