The story of the introduction of the commercial use of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is tightly linked with its beneficial effects in ethylene-sensitive ornamentals ( Reid and Staby, 2007 ). Although the use of 1-MCP in apple storage now dwarfs its

Nearly 12 years have passed since the discovery of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) as a specific inhibitor of ethylene action ( Serek et al., 1994 ). Preceded in use by silver ion ( Beyer, 1976 ), the anionic silver complex, silver thiosulfate (STS

-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), which binds to ethylene receptors and blocks a response to the phytohormone, can significantly delay apple ripening ( DeLong et al., 2004 ; Fan et al., 1999 ; Ferenczi et al., 2006 ; Mattheis et al., 2005 ; Moya-Leon et al., 2007
