A series of homologs of retinoic acid was synthesized. The activities of these compounds on granuloma formation induced by implanted cotton pellets were studied. The compound (β‐C22 acid) with two more carbons on the side chain of retinoic acid is the most active. The hexosamine and hydroxyproline contents in the granuloma affected by these compounds are also increased. The mechanisms of action of these compounds on wound healing are discussed.
