Abstract

Surface factors affecting the penetration of compounds into plants is a subject presenting a challenge to the investigator. The surface and interfacial properties of solvents and solutions can be measured by well established methods. But to use these measurements meaningfully in relation to plant surfaces is not a simple problem. The plant presents an irregular surface that is chemically heterogeneous and both of these factors introduce complications when measurements are involved. The permeation of compounds into cells beneath the leaf surface is related in an indefinite way to surface properties. There are many hypotheses dealing with one phase or another of the subject but there is no unified theory treating the subject as a whole upon which unequivocal measurements can be based. However, useful predictions can be made concerning the fate of a restricted number of compounds when they are applied to plants.
