Twenty cyclopropenes were prepared and their anti-ethylene activity was evaluated in the fruit ripening and plant senescence bioassays. The treatment of banana fruits with developed antagonists led to delay of fruit ripening. Some antagonists were capable to extend exhibition life of cut mini carnation flowers as well as delay senescence of bean leaves. The potency of ethylene antagonists declined with increase in molecular weight and reduction in their solubility in water, irrespective of bioassay used.
