The compounds have a selective stimulant action at .beta..sub.2 -adrenoreceptors and may be used inter alia in the treatment of diseases associated with reversible airways obstructions such as asthma and chronic bronchitis. The compounds may be formulated in conventional manner as pharmaceutical compositions with physiologically acceptable carriers or excipients.
