Description

The Chemistry and Biochemistry of Plant Hormones: Recent Advances in Phytochemistry, Volume 7 provides an understanding of the chemistry and biochemistry of plant hormones. This book discusses the presents the experiments and techniques that lead to a deeper understanding of the mode of action of plant hormones.

Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview on gibberellins wherein isolation and characterization techniques are emphasized. This text then examines the status of cytokinin chemistry with emphasis on methods of structure elucidation, synthesis, and structure–activity relations. Other chapters consider the synergistic effects possible when workers from various areas are able to collaborate. This book discusses as well the chemistry of abscisic acid. The final chapter deals with the suggested paths for the biosynthesis of ethylene, which would facilitate work on the regulation of ethylene biosynthesis.

This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, biophysicists, photobiologists, plant physiologists, and research workers.
