1-MCP mechanism and effect


The mechanism of action of 1-MCP consists in disabling the biological process of maturation and aging as a result of blocking receptors. There is an inhibition of biosynthesis of ethylene, products of its oxidation, reduction of respiration intensity, enzymatic activity, chlorophyll disintegration and other metabolic processes.

The active ingredient for fruit and vegetable processing is the gaseous 1-MCP, released from 1-MCP powder in portable generators at the place of application.

Fruit processing must be carried out before laying on storage or transportation in a refrigerated sealed chamber (concentration of the active component in the atmosphere of the Chamber 0.5-1.0 ppm) at a temperature of + 1-2 °c within 24 hours no later than 2-7 days After the harvest.

After such treatment, the fruit can be transported to consumers without loss or stored in refrigeration chambers with a normal or controlled atmosphere until the next harvest.

In the applied concentrations 1-MCP is safe for human health and the environment.

Fruits treated with 1-MCP, are crispy and juicy on taste and much less diseases. The greatest positive effect is noted in the processing of fruits taken in the optimal time. Also, the efficacy of 1-MCP depends on varietal features, because the biological characteristics of the varieties determine the intensity of the synthesis of ethylene, the degree of adherence of the active substance to the ethylene receptors and the ability to regenerate new receptors.


Aoweite provides high quality 1-MCP formulation and powder to satisfy our clients' demands.
