    Coumarin derivatives proved inactive throughout our investigation; 53 coumarin derivatives behaved in the same way withPathak et al. 15, 16. These authors, however, seem to have noticed a slight or minimum activity with high doses of some 7-allyloxycoumarins, of hydroquinone monoallyl-ether and of two benzofurane derivatives. We feel that the extremely low activities observed in these compounds do not overshadow our conclusion attributing the photosensitizing activity essentially to the furocoumarin nucleus. On the other side, we also noticed that, so far as photosensitizing and compounds of different nature as benzpyrene (see below).Google Scholar
