Synthesis of 2-amino-4-(2,3-dihydro-2-methylbenzofuran-5-yl) thiazole and 2-mercapto-4-(2,3-dihydro-2-methyl benzofuran-5-yl) thiazole have been carried out starting from 5-acetyl-2,3-dihydro-2-methylbenzofuran. These compounds have shown marginal activity when tested against Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus niger Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli at 25 and 50 mcg ml concentrations.
