The compound you are seeking is indole acetic acid...note
the spelling. Your search will be fruitless without that
correction. There is much information about IAA and in
the older literature it is frequently referred to with
the generic word auxin. A library search or computer search
on the words auxin and indole acetic acid and the acronym
IAA should yield a treasure trove of information. Also
there will be long discussions about this in any botany
and/or plant physiology textbook. Good Luck!
