Effect of thymol on antifungal ability of chitosan coating against Penicillium expansum in Yali pear

Jingfa Wang, Bin Yang, Jiankang Cao, Weibo Jiang.


In this work, we researched using thymol rather than complete EOs to improve antifungal effect of chitosan coating against P. expansum and the possible mechanisms of inhibiting the pathogen in pear. Our results showed that growth of P. expansum could be effectively inhibited both in vitro and in pear by thymol and resistance-related enzymes in pear also could be enhanced by it.

Key words: Thymol; Chitosan coating; Pear; Penicillium expansum; Antifungal
