2-amino-3-ethoxycarbonyl-4-(4′-methoxy Phenyl)-4H-pyrano-[3,2-c]-chromene-6-methyl-5-one was synthesized by the two-component reaction of 6-methyl-4-hydroxy coumarin with 4′-methoxy-2-cyano cinnamate, which was synthesized by Knoevenagel reaction with 88% yield. The compound obtained was characterized by spectroscopic techniques and confirmed by X-ray crystallographic studies. The crystallographic data analysis reveals that the title compound crystallizes in the triclinic space group \(P\overline{1}\) with cell parameters a = 7.7750(8) Å, b = 9.0310(6) Å, c = 15.6120(17) Å, α = 77.249(7)°, β = 115.860(3)°, γ = 70.139(7)°, V = 1,003.0(16) Å3 for Z = 4. The structure has been solved by direct methods and refined to R1 = 0.0552 for 3,164 observed reflections with I > 2 σ(I). The pyran ring is in a flattened boat conformation. The carbonyl group is oriented in a -synperiplanar(cis) conformation.
