Abstract

cis-p-Coumaroylagmatine (1) was isolated from Albizzia julibrissin Durazz as a bioactive substance for nyctinasty. The compound was quite effective for leaf-opening of the plant at 1 x 10-5 M at night. Nyctinastic movement of Albizzia julibrissin Durazz is assumed to be controlled by the balance of concentration between 1 and an unknown leaf-closing substance.
