Resumen

RAZAVI, Seyed Mehdi et al. Coumarins from the aerial parts of Prangos uloptera (Apiaceae). Rev. bras. farmacogn. [online]. 2008, vol.18, n.1, pp. 1-5. ISSN 0102-695X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-695X2008000100002.

Phytochemical studies on the aerial parts of Prangos uloptera, an endemic Iranian species of the genus Prangos, yielded five coumarins, xanthotoxin (1), prangenin (2), scopoletin (3), deltoin (4) and prangolarin (5). The structures of these coumarins were elucidated by spectroscopic means, and the antioxidant potential of 1-5 was evaluated by the DPPH assay. The chemotaxonomic significance of 1-5 is also discussed.
