Max Chemicals gains mesotrione patents

Chinese company Max (Rudong) Chemicals has been awarded two international patents for “clean” production technologies for the herbicide, mesotrione. The company claims to have overcome “extremely high IP and equivalency barriers” to develop the new technologies. Max Chemicals specialises in developing and manufacturing off-patent agrochemicals for global markets. Mesotrione is a systemic pre- and post-emergence herbicide for the control of broadleaf weeds in maize, launched by Syngenta in 2001.
