Quinazolinone and quinazolinedione derivatives are of considerable interest due to their wide array of pharmacological properties. In this paper we report the synthesis of ten quinazolinediones. The previous isolation of two of these compounds, namely 1-methyl-3-(2'-phenylethyl)-1H,3H-quinazoline-2,4-dione and 1-methyl-3-[2'-(4'- methoxyphenyl)ethyl]-lH,3H-quinazoline-2,4-dione, from the seed husks of Mexican Zanthoxylum species has been reported
