Single step synthesis of strigolactone analogues from cyclic keto enols, germination stimulants for seeds of parasitic weeds.


The single step synthesis of a newly designed series of strigolactones (SLs) from cyclic keto enols is described. The germinating activity of these SL analogues towards seeds of the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche spp. is reported.
