1-Methylcyclopropene(1-MCP),keep apples in fresh

hi,is anyone here interested in the product 1-MCP? It is used for keeping fruits, flowers and vegetables in fresh.

Function mechanism:
Use 1-MCP soon after fruit harvest to block ethylene. The combination of ethylene and receptors inside fruit cell makes fruit ripe. Use 1-MCP prior to combine those receptors could block ethylene, to prolong fruit shelf life.

Commercial product is in powder form,use Alpha cyclodextrin to wrap 1-MCP gas.
1-MCP gas purity meets 3.5%. It is suitable for cold room,CA room,doing the treatment/application.

Take apple for example,1 gram 1-MCP powder can treat 15 cubic meters space,we estimate 15 cbm room can store about 4 tons apple. So 1 gram 1-MCP can treat 4 tons apples.

I'd like to conmunicate with you here for 1-MCP if you have interest. thanks! : )
