Auxin like broadspectrum plant growth regulator, mainly used to promote rooting of cutting of herbaceous or woody ornamentals. Its melting point is 167°C.Solubility: In water 1.5 g/l (20). In alcohol 100-1000g/l, acetone 30-100, diethyl ether 30-100, chloroform 10-30 (all in g/l).

lIn high concentrations inhibition, in small concentrations promotion of longitudinal cell growth and the related water absorption of the cells. IAA causes a fairly rapid increase in the cell wall extensibility in coleoptiles and young stems.
lPromotion of cell division of the meristematic tissue.
lPromotion of root formation even on tissues which do normally form roots, but inhibition of growth, excpet in smallest concentrations.
lPromotion of callus formation and callus.
lInhibition of budding and growth of auxiliary buds and bud formation.
lInfluencing of leaf, flower and fruit shedding.
lInfluencing of flower formation
lFormation of parthenocarpic fruit (seedless fruit).
lPromotion of respiration and protein formation.
lFor elongation growth is typically 10-5 to 10-6 parts per million
lFor root growth 10-10 parts per million
lFor bud growth 10-8 parts per million
lFor flower promotion 10-4 parts per million
