Abstract

Dwarf plants derived from tissue cultures of Pelargonium capitatum, gave an essential oil of quite different composition from that produced by normal plants. This difference persisted for as long as the plant demonstrated the effect of the growth retardant. The chemical composition of the essential oil derived from ‘growth-retarded plants’ is presented.
