The reaction of naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-carbohydrazide 4 on treatment with chloroacetyl chloride in acid media afforded N'-(chloroacetyl)naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-carbohydrazide 5. This on treatment with various aryl amines in DMF produced N'-(arylaminoacetyl)naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2- carbohydrazides 6a–f. The structures of 5 and 6a-f have been established by spectral studies. In addition the synthesised compounds have been screened for antimicrobial activities.
