One of the most important groups of local anesthetics is the class of alkyl and dialkylaminoalkyl esters of aromatic acids. Of these compounds, the diethylaminoethyl esters are particularly valuable.
It is obvious that pyrrolidine is merely a modified form of diethylamine. The purpose of this work is to learn the effect of substituting the N-pyrrolidyl nucleus for the diethyl amino nucleus in various esters of the local anesthetic type.
