3. Due to the presence of polyphenol oxidase in the cells of avocado, exposure to oxygen in the air causes an enzymatic reaction and develops pigment, turning the avocado/guacamole brown. So in case you want to make more, store in an air tight container or cover the avocado with a cling wrap. In short, avoid exposure of avocado to oxygen.
