Innovation in research and development is a driving force of Udragon which ensures that we continue to apply “the right chemistry” in a sustainable way. The company has established its technical innovation system, which aims at developing new products, as well as increasing the learning-research-industrialization combination. The technology center was established in 2005, and located in Tangxi industrial development area, Hangzhou, occupying a total area of 1800 square meters: specifically, 450 square meters for R&D center, 500 square meters for the pilot scale production workshop, 450 square meters for the inspection center, and 250 square for the formulation research laboratory.
This R&D team is made up of various professionals (more than 20 in number), including senior engineers, doctors, masters and so forth. The technology center is fully equipped with inspection equipment, possessing good test conditions for lab trials and the pilot scale experiments for new products. We have more than 30 sets of inspection equipment, such as high performance liquid chromatography (e. g. Waters and Shimadze), gas chromatography, laser particle size analyzer, UV-VIS spectrophotometer, low-temperature stability tester, and digital melting point apparatus.
The R&D team is mainly responsible for researching products process , creating new pesticide and testing products quality . Successively, we have developed more than 20 products based on synthesizing technology, such as Difenoconazole, Trifluzamide, Famoxadone, Tetraconazole, Azoxystrobin, Penconazole, Boscalid, Cyproconazole, Epoxiconazole, Clodinafop-propargyl, Trifloxystrobin, Fenoxaprop-P-ethyl, as well as created 4 new pesticides. We have declared 81 patents for invention, succeeded 52 authorizations and applied 5 inventive patents in the USA and Europe, succeeded 1 authorization.
