Project description

Within this StarTT project, we wish to scale up the synthesis method and produce a larger quantity of new agrochemicals. The Arabidopsis data will then be validated in barley. Furthermore, the library of analogues will be expanded to extend the scope of this product class to other ABA-related processes such as seed germination, root development, somatic embryogenesis, etc. This will result in an extension of the IP. The availability of larger quantities of these leads is also essential for the continuation of the valorization process, which is currently running in collaboration with a company.
