Sixteen N'-alkyl and N'-aryl-N-[3-(2, 4-dialkoxy-5-alkylphenyl) propyl]-1, 2- diaminoethanes (IV) have been synthesised by treatment of 2,4-dialkoxy-5-alkylbenzene-propanoylchlorides with glycine followed by conversion of the resultant acids (III) into acid chlorides; condensation of acid chlorides with amines and LAH reduction of resultant diamides. The diamines isolated as dihydrochlorides have been tested in vitro for amoebicidal activity against E. histolytica.
