A new idea for how anti-aging products delay ripening of fruit and wilting of flowers
Date:5/2/2008

wn, and it is mostly difficult to make them, Pirrung said. Based on the reaction of 1-MCP with copper, we discovered a very easy process to make a carbene. When the carbene is generated by the copper in the ethylene receptor, it is the receptor that reacts, creating the permanent linkage that prevents the receptor from perceiving ethylene.

According to Pirrung, knowledge of a chemical reaction between 1-MCP and copper in ethylene receptors could help researchers design new compounds, such as non-gaseous compounds, that are capable of working as well as 1-MCP but are not as difficult to handle.

Such compounds would enable much more widespread treatment of fruits, flowers and vegetables to prevent their spoiling, he said.

Next in their research, Pirrung and his colleagues will study in more detail the chemical reaction between 1-MCP and plants copper-containing receptors.
