Organic and Medicinal Chemistry Letters 2(1): 1-1
Investigation of the aerial parts of the Egyptian medicinal plant Ammi majus L. led to isolation of new coumarin, 6-hydroxy-7-methoxy-4 methyl coumarin and 6-hydroxy-7-methoxy coumarin; this is the first time they have been isolated from this plant. The structures of the compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic data interpretation and showed anti-inflammatory and anti-viral activity.
