    p-Chlorophenoxyacetic Acid

    $24.17 - $61.81

    p-Chlorophenoxyacetic acid (4-CPA) is a synthetic plant growth regulator used to mimic the physiological effects of auxin, thus influencing root and fruit growth. It can also be used as a herbicide at high dosage.  p-Chlorophenoxyacetic acid is soluble in ethanol and KOH and most organic solvents.  It is very slightly soluble in water, and degradation in aqueous medium has been reported

    SolubilitySoluble in ethanol and KOH and most organic solvents. Very slightly soluble in water.
