Gleditsia triacanthos L. (honey locust), a plant of the widespread family Leguminosae, shows strong nyctinastic behaviour. Guided by the bioassay, a number of turgor influencing substances - PLMF 1, PLMF 3, PLMF 4, PLMF 5 and PLMF 6 - could be isolated and characterized from aqueous extracts of this plant. Structure and biological relevance of this phenolic-acid-glycosidesulfates are confirmed by synthesis. The multitude and the graduated biological activity of that factors suggests a
