Abstract

PHENOL and certain substituted phenolic compounds were reported recently to be co-carcinogenic in animal tissue1. The investigation of phenolic compounds in tumorous plant tissue of Nicotiana hybrids is of great academic interest in that much is known of the genetic background2,3, cytology4, chemical composition5 and the effects of radiation6 and of certain anti-tumour chemicals7 on the tumorous plant. Some of these compounds are known to take part in alkaloid metabolism8.
