One of the primary purposes of this investigation was to isolate an alkamine ester of cinnamic acid which might possess anesthetic properties. The study of anesthetics has stimulated a vast amount of research on the formation of esters from cinnamic acid and other related acids. Ever since the discovery of novocaine (18) attempts have been made to find a local anesthetic which will possess not only all of the favorable properties of this substance but which will exhibit in addition vasoconstrictor activity and anesthetize effectively mucous membranes when applied topically. During the course of this research, the alkamine esters have been most widely used.
