Novel carbamates 4 and 5 were synthesized from starting material 5-hydroxy-3-methyl-3H-benzofuran-2-one, 17. The acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitory activities of 4 and 5 were determined against fresh human enzyme, are in the realm of clinically valuable compounds and are discussed. In addition, the reductive properties of the 2-carbonyl group of 3H-benzofuran-2-one, possessing an unsaturated substituted group in its 3 position (9, 11 and 14), were studied.
