Abstract

During a synthesis of coumarins to obtain new candidates for treating Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), an unusual rearrangement of a benzopyran group to a benzofuran group occurred, offering a novel synthesis pathway of these benzofuran derivatives. The possible mechanism of the novel rearrangement was also discussed. All of the benzofuran derivatives have weak anti-AChE activities compared with the reference compound, donepezil.
Keywords: coumarin; benzofuran; rearrangement; anti-AChE coumarin; benzofuran; rearrangement; anti-AChE
