1-(2-Furanyl)-3-aryl-2-propenones (I) were cyclised with substituted phenyl hydrazines yielding 1-aryl-5-(2-furanyl)-4,5-dithydro-3-(substituted phenyl)-1H-pyrazoles. The double bond of I was brominated which yielded a dibromo compound (III). (III) on reaction with secondary amines yielded 1-(2-furanyl)-3-substituted-1, 2-disubstituted-3-propanones. The mass and NMR spectra have been discussed. The compounds were screened for acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity as well as the anthelmintic activity against H. nana.
