Abstract

A preparative high performance liquid chromatography system has been developed for the analysis of gibberellins, abscisic acid, and indoles. When used in conjunction with conventional analytical high performance liquid chromatography, it is an effective technique that enables small quantities of hormones in semi-purified plant extracts to be characterised by mass spectrometry. The procedures have been used to study the metabolism of (3H)-GA4 by Phaseolus coccineus seedlings.
