Basic Information of Benzyladenine

Chemical Name: Benzyladenine

Cas No.: 1214-39-7

Molecular Formula: C12H11N5

Chemical Structure:



6-Benzylaminopurine, benzyl adenine or BAP is a first-generation synthetic cytokinin that elicits plant growth and development responses, setting blossoms and stimulating fruit richness by stimulating cell division. It is an inhibitor of respiratory kinase in plants, and increases post-harvest life of green vegetables. Influence of cytokinin as 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) in combination with other methods on postharvest green color retention on broccoli heads and asparagus spears, showed positive results for quality retention. Treatment with 10 and 15 ppm BAP can be used to extend shelf life of fresh-cut broccoli florets and shredded cabbage during storage at 6±1°C at commercial level.

6-Benzyladenine, also called 6-benzylaminopurine, is a synthetic cytokinin that stimulates cell division in plants. Among other actions, it spurs plant growth, sets blossoms, and improves fruit quality.

Cytokinins are in the plant growth hormone family. As part of his pioneering research in plant growth regulators, plant physiologist Folke K. Skoog at the University of Wisconsin–Madison synthesized 6-benzyladenine and demonstrated its efficacy.

In a recent C&EN “Periodic Graphics” page, author Andy Brunning included 6-benzyladenine in a roundup of how “flower food” helps to preserve cut flowers. He notes that the growth regulator’s contribution to preservation is maintaining petal colors. 6-Benzyladenine is similarly used to extend the shelf lives of broccoli florets and shredded cabbage to make them more attractive to customers.
