In the present paper, a novel series of dibenzofuran-piperazine derivatives were synthesized via the treatment of N-(2-methoxy-3-dibenzofuranyl)-2-chloroacetamide with substituted piperazine derivatives. The chemical structures of the compounds were elucidated by H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, mass spectral data; elemental analysis and HPLC analysis. Each derivative was evaluated for antiplatelet activity and anticholinesterase activity. Compound 2m with 2-furoyl moiety exhibited high percentage inhibition as much as standard drug aspirin on arachidonic acid (AA)-induced platelet aggregation. None of the compounds presented significant inhibitor effect on collagen-induced platelet aggregation. Furthermore, the anticholinesterase activity of the compounds was determined and they did not show promising inhibitor activity compared with standard drug donepezil.
