Effect of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) on volatile compound production in papaya (Carica papaya L.) fruit
Srividhya Sundaram and Jeyakumar Prabhakaran
Volatile production in papaya fruit (Var. CO 8.) treated with 1-methylcyclopropene compared to untreated fruit under ambient condition were evaluated in the present study. The volatile production evaluation provide evidence that after the treatment of papaya fruit with 1-MCP the synthesis of aliphatic esters, saturated and unsaturated, derived from fatty acids metabolism are reduced as these are ethylene dependent processes.
