Benzofuran (coumarone), a heterocyclic compound consisting of fused benzene and furan rings, has been identified as a privileged structure in medicinal chemistry. Benzofuran derviatives have shown biological activities ranging from antifungal and antimicrobial to antagonists for the H3 receptor and angiotensin II. A diversity of synthetic routes can be applied to the synthesis of benzofurans. The presence of a halogen allows these reagents to be used as substrates in various coupling reactions, including Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions.
