|Title:||Orally active bronchospasmolytic compounds and their preparation|
|Abstract:||Novel compounds are disclosed having useful activity as bronchodilators of improved longevity of action and reduced incidence of side effects. These compounds are described by the formula: ##EQU1## wherein R.sub.1 is a member of the class consisting of tertiary butyl and cyclobutyl, and R.sub.2 is a hydrogen or 2 to 5 carbon atom acyl radical, and pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof. The activity of these compounds is compared to previously known bronchodilators such as 1-(3', 5'-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-(isopropylamino)-ethanol, having the common name orciprenaline, and 1-(3', 4'-dihydroxyphenyl-2-isoproplyamino-ethanol, having the common name isoprenaline.|

1. A method of producing bronchial dilation in animals, including humans, in need therof, comprising the administration of a therapeutically effective amount of a compound selected
from the group consisting of ethanol amines having the formulas ##EQU19## wherein R.sub.2 is the acyl radical of a 2-5 carbon fatty acid and pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.
2. The method according to claim 1 wherein said compound is 1-(3',5'-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-(tert.-butylamino)ethanol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.
3. The method according to claim 1 wherein said compound is 1-(3',5'-diisobutyryloxyphenyl)-2-(tert.-butylamino)ethanol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.
4. A composition for producing bronchial dilation comprising a therapeutically effective amount of a compound selected from the group consisting of the ethanol amines having the formulas: ##EQU20## wherein R.sub.2 is the acyl radical of a 2-5 carbon fatty acid and pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof, in combination with a pharmaceutical carrier.
5. The composition according to claim 4 wherein said compound is 1-(3',5'-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-(tert.-butylamino)ethanol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.
6. The composition as described in claim 4, wherein said compound is present in the range of 0.1 to 20 percent by weight.
7. The composition of claim 4 in dosage unit form containing said compound in the range of 0.05 to 50 milligrams.
