New compounds: derivatives of methyl 2-aminoacetyl-4,5-dimethoxyphenylacetate.

Methyl 2-bromoacetyl-4,5-dimethoxyphenylacetate was prepared by reacting cupric bromide with methyl 2-acetyl-4,5-dimethoxyphenylacetate. Aminoacetyl derivatives formed on condensation of substituted p-aminobenzoic esters with the bromoacetyl derivative. Some prepared compounds were tested for local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory activities.
