Product Description

Molecular Formula: C2H6ClO3P

Physics and chemical properties:

Appearance: colorless solid;

Melting point: 74 – 75℃;

Vapor pressure: c. 265℃ (decomp.);

Boiling point range: <0.01mPa (20℃); S.g./density: 1.409?.02 (20℃, tech.);


1) Readily soluble in water, methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, acetone, diethyl ether,
and other polar organic solvents;
2) Sparingly soluble in non-polar organic solvents such as benzene and toluene;
3) Insoluble in kerosene and diesel oil;

Stability: stable in aqueous solutions having pH <5; at higher pH, decomposition occurs with the liberation of ethylene; Sensitive to UV irradiation.


It is a kind of plant growth regulator with systemic properties, Ethephon penetrates
plant tissue and is decomposed to ethylene; which affects growth processes.
