- ... Unmodified, cyanoethylated and crosslinked maize starches were reacted with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetyl chloride in pyridine to produce the corresponding 2,4-D esters of high acyl content. Hydrolysis studies at pH 6 and 8 at ambient temp. showed that these insoluble compositions liberated varying amounts of 2,4-D and soluble 2,4-D esters by ester link and glucoside bond cleavage, respectively, at ra ...
