1. 11-Hydroxy-7,12-dimethoxycoumestan has been condensed with acetylenic alcohols, and it has been shown that the reaction products are 7,12-dimethoxy-10,11-(2,2-dialkylchromemo)coumestans.

2. 7,11,12-Tribenzyloxycoumestan has been reduced with lithium tetrahydroaluminate, giving 5,6-dibenzyloxy-2-(4-benzyloxy-2-hydroxyphenyl-3-hydroxymethylcoumarone.
