Jasmonic acid (JA)-related compounds were synthesized, and their inhibitory activities on rice seedling growth were investigated. Three functions (C-1 CH2COOH or CH2COOCH3, C-2 (Z)-2'-pentenyl or n-pentyl and C-3 ketone or hydroxyl) were essential for exhibiting inhibitory activity in this series of compounds. A dihydro-JA-related compound, 4-acetylnonanoic acid, also showed inhibitory activity similar to JA.
