Boron Complexes With Gradual 1- Methylcyclopropene Releasing Capability

Boron derivatives that are stable at ambient conditions and capable of releasing 1-methyl cyclopropene (1-MCP) gradually when in contact with water.


•  Quantitative and sensitive test
•  Results obtained in 3 - 6 hours instead of days or weeks
•  Controlled delivery of 1-MCP, selective application, cost effective multi-batch treatment option
•  Potential to be used in open fields to increase crop yields



•  Treatment of perishable agricultural commodities such as fruits, flowers and vegetables, to retard ripening and thus prolong shelf-life by blocking the activities of ethylene
