Costunolide (I) on reaction with diazomethane affords a pyrazoline derivative (II) whose pyrolysis furnishes three products. The structures of all these compounds have been completely established by spectral methods and chemical correlation. In this study fourteen costunolide derivatives have been prepared and these have been found active as plant growth regulators. © 1979.
