Gallic acid derivative and process of preparing the same

This invention provides a plant growth regulatory activity of a new biologically active synthetic molecule methanone-(3',4',5'-trimethoxy) phenyl, 1-naphthyl, 2-O-4''-ethyl but-2''-enoate. More particularly, the invention relates to the potent plant growth promoting activity of a gallic acid derivative having a structure represented by Formula 1 and a molecular formulae C26H26O7. This invention also provides a novel process for preparation of said molecule from a naturally occurring compound and testing it for growth regulating activity using Bacopa test system developed at CIMAP (Khanuja et al., 2001).
