Abstract

The isolation of four pure gibberellins, namely gibberellic acid and the gibberellins A1 A2 and A4, was reported between 1954 and 1957. They have been the subject of intensive chemical and biological research since their discovery and are now well known [1]. The chemistry of gibberellic acid and gibberellin A1 has been described in detail in the literature [1, 2].
