- 6-Benzylaminopurine was first synthesized and tested in the laboratories of plant physiologist Folke K . Skoog.
- 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.
- There are two types of cytokinins : adenine-type cytokinins represented by kinetin, zeatin, and 6-benzylaminopurine, and phenylurea-type cytokinins like diphenylurea and thidiazuron ( TDZ ).
- "' 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.
