New β-substituted amines and ethers of the furan series (II-V) were prepared by reaction of methyl 4-bromomethyl-5-methyl-2-furancarboxylate (I) with nucleophiles such as pyrrolidine, piperidine, morpholine, N-phenylpiperazine, cyclohexylamine, 2-methylcyclohexylamine, N-ethylaniline, p-toluidine, ethanol, butanol and salicylaldehyde. The structure of the products was confirmed by their analytical and spectral data. Kovats indices I for the products were determined using gas-liquid chromatography.
