Abstract

Eight compounds have been synthesized to define the relationship between side-chain planarity and cytokinin activity within a series of N6-substituted adenines and adenosines. These compounds and closely related ones have been tested for relative promotion of growth in the tobacco bioassay. It has been concluded from the examples available that side-chain planarity is important in imparting the highest order of cytokinin activity.
