Novel kaurane ditepene monoamides were synthesized in good yields directly from kaurenoic (1) and grandiflorenic (2) acids and unprotected symmetrical diamines, using a modified protocol for monoacylation. Amides from 1 and 2 and monoamines were also obtained and tested against seed germination and growth of radicle and shoot of Lactuca sativa (lettuce), at 10−3, 10−5, and 10−7 M. Amides from symmetrical diamines showed significant inhibitory activity at higher concentrations.
