A series of substituted benzofuran derivatives were synthesized and characterized by spectral data. Some of the synthesized compounds were tested for in vitro antioxidant activity. Some of them have shown very good antioxidant activity. These compounds were also tested for antimicrobial activity against microbial strains viz. staphylococcus aureus (NCIM 5021) and salmonella typhimurium (NCIM 2501), but none of them showed any activity against these microorganisms.
