2-Chloroethylphosphonic acid (CEPA. "Amchem 66-329", "Ethrel"; ref. 1), a new plant growth regulator, degrades to yield ethylene in an alkaline solution. When applied to plants, it has been very effective in causing responses characteristic of ethylene treatment (3, 4, 6, 7). The formation of ethvlene or its alkene homologs from CEPA or its homologs was studied and deFcribed in detail in 1963 by Maynard and Swan (5) including the probable reaction mechanism. Nevertheless, several reports have… CONTINUE READING
