Coumarin : Chemical and Pharmacological Profile

  title={Coumarin : Chemical and Pharmacological Profile},
  author={Piyush K. Jain and Himanshu Joshi},
Coumarins are classified as a member of the benzopyrone family. all of which consist of a benzene ring joined to a pyrone ring. The benzopyrones can be subdivided into the benzoalfa-pyrones to which the coumarins belong and the benzo-gama-pyrones, of which the flavonoids are principal members. Umbelliferone, esculetin and scopoletin are the most widespread coumarins in nature. During the synthesis of these compounds ortho-hydroxylation should respectively take place on p-coumaric, caffeic and… CONTINUE READING
