We determined the anti-cataract effects and antioxidative activities of four 4-hydroxy-3(2H)-furanones. These four furanones showed similar antioxidative activities in the ferric ion reduction model. 4-Hydroxy-2,5-dimethyl-3(2H)-furanone (HDMF) and 2(or 5)-ethyl-4-hydroxy-5(or 2)-methyl-3(2H)-furanone (EHMF) exhibited a higher suppression effect on lipid peroxidation in
