Chemical Information
Name1H-Indole-3-acetic acid
DescriptionWidely distributed in higher plants Indole-3-acetic acid, also known as IAA, is a heterocyclic compound that is a phytohormone called auxin. This colourless solid is probably the most important plant auxin. The molecule is derived from indole, containing a carboxymethyl group (acetic acid). 1H-Indole-3-acetic acid is found in many foods, some of which are lettuce, cherry tomato, chinese bayberry, and okra.
