A non-natural cytokinin. The chemical name 6 - Furfuryl amino purine (N6-furan methyl adenine formula C10H9N5O). Insoluble in water, soluble in strong acid, alkali and acetic acid. In addition to a role to promote cell division, but also has to delay the senescence of detached leaves, induced bud differentiation and increase the role of stomatal opening. Kinetin is a white crystalline, the crystallization from ethanol, melting point is 266-267 ° C, the crystallization from toluene \ methanol, the melting point is 214-215 C. Heated to 220 C sublimation. It is insoluble in water, ethanol, ether and acetone. It is soluble in dilute acid or dilute alkali and acetic acid. Its maximum UV absorption spectrum is 268nm, a minimum of 233 nm, Molecules in the Under pressure to be 1 mol / l sulfuric acid decomposition of adenine and levulinic acid. Molecular stability of atmospheric pressure or at room temperature.
