Indole-3-butyric Acid (IBA)

CAS# 133-32-4 >99%

Molecular Weight: 203.24

Molecular Formula: C12H13NO2




I002 Indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) CAS# 133-32-4 is derived from butyric acid, a growth hormone also known as 4-(1H-Indol-3-yl) butanoic acid, and Indolebutyric acid – Molecular Formula: C12H13NO2. It is a vital plant growth regulator used in plant tissue culture primarily for root induction and adventitious root formation. It plays a crucial role in promoting the development of healthy roots from plant explants and encouraging the formation of adventitious roots on plant cuttings, especially in species that are challenging to root.

IBA is compatible with a diverse range of plant species, including woody, herbaceous, and ornamental plants, making it a versatile tool in forestry, horticulture, and agriculture for propagation purposes. The concentration of IBA used typically ranges from 0.1 to 10 mg/L in plant tissue culture media, depending on the plant species and desired outcomes.
When applied either topically as a solution or added to the plant tissue culture medium, I002 Indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) effectively facilitates root induction and promotes robust root growth. Overall, this solution is highly effective in promoting root development and is widely utilized in plant tissue culture for enhancing root formation in various plant species, contributing to successful propagation and cultivation processes.
