Three new C-20-gibberellins, GA(97) (2 beta-hydroxy-GA(53)), GA(98) (2 beta-hydroxy-GA(44)) and GA(99) (2 beta-hydroxy-GA(19)), have all been isolated from spinach, GA(97) also from tomato root cultures and pea pods, and GA(98) from maize pollen. The structures of these compounds were established by GC-mass spectrometric comparisons of the trimethylsilylated methyl esters with authentic samples prepared from gibberellic acid (GA(3)).
