Structural analogues of the phytotoxic thaxtomin natural products have been synthesized by building upon a piperazinedione core and from l-phenylalanine. The compounds were evaluated for their phytotoxic activity against Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings and some of the key features for activity have been identified.
