Product nameIndole-3-butyric acid potassium salt, auxin-family plant hormone
DescriptionWater soluble auxin-family plant hormone.
- 4-(3-Indolyl)butyric acid, potassium salt
- IBA K
- Indole butryic acid water soluble
Water soluble auxin-family plant hormone. Thought to be a precursor of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) the most abundant and the basic auxin natively occurring and functioning in plants. IAA generates the majority of auxin effects in intact plants, and is the most potent native auxin.
