Synthesis and anticancer evaluation of some coumarin and azacoumarin derivatives


Coumarin and its nitrogen analogue 1-aza coumarin are a class of lactones and lactams, respectively, which are indispensable heterocyclic units to both chemists and biochemists. 1-Aza coumarin derivatives, which ultimately metabolize as the corresponding 8-hydroxy coumarins in the biological system are therefore found to be very good anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and analgesic agents. A series of hybrid substituted coumarin and azacoumarin-3-carboxylic acid derivatives (8-methoxycoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (4a), 8-methoxyazacoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (4b), 5-bromo-8-methoxycoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (5a), 5-bromo-8-methoxyazacoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (5b), 2-acetoxy-5-bromo-8-methoxyquinoline-3-carboxylic acid (6), and 5,7-di(phenylazo)-8-methoxycoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (7) were synthesized and structurally proved using spectral and elemental analysis data. Substituted coumarin-3-carboxylic acid (4a and 5a) and Substituted azacoumarin-3-carboxylic acid (4b, 5b and 6) were tested for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against MCF-7 and HepG-2 cell lines.
