Benzofuran nucleus frequently occurs in natural products. In the present course of study an attempt is made for synthesis of new Benzofuran derivatives. 5-chloro-2-hydroxy acetophenone 2 was prepared by the Fries rearrangement with anhydrous aluminium chloride at 1300c for 3 hrs. The compound 2 was treated with chloroacetone in presence of anhydrous acetone and potassium carbonate gave 5-chloro-3-methyl-2-acetyl Benzofuran 3. Compound 3 underwent condensation with aromatic aldehyde and aromatic amines to furnished chalcone and Schiff derivatives 4a-e and 5a-e respectively. The synthesized compounds were screened for their antimicrobial activities.
