4-Hydroxycoumarin Properties


Molecule Structure Image



4-Hydroxycoumarins are a class of vitamin K antagonist anticoagulant drug molecules derived from coumarin by adding a hydroxy group at the 4 position to obtain 4-hydroxycoumarin, then adding a large aromatic substituent at the 3-position. The large 3-position substituent is required for anticoagulant activity.
