A novel series of benzofuranone-ylidene-methyl benzylpyridinium derivatives (6a-u) were synthesized as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. The anticholinesterase activity of synthesized compounds was measured using colorimetric Ellman's method. It was revealed that some synthesized compounds exhibited high anticholinesterase activity, among them compound 6b was the most active compound (IC50 = 10 ± 6.87 nM). © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
