The cytotoxic properties of four synthesized coumarin derivatives containing 4-bromophenyl or anthracene moieties against the human hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines (HepG-2) were investigated in vitro by use of the sulforhodamine B (SRB) assay. The four coumarin derivatives are 3-(4-bromophenyl)-benzo[5,6]coumarin (1a), 3-(4-bromophenyl)-7-(N,N-diethylamino)coumarin (1b), 3-(4-(anthracen-10-yl)phenyl)-benzo[5,6]coumarin (2a), and 3-(4-(anthracen-10-yl)phenyl)-7-(N,N-diethylamino)coumarin (2b). The preliminary results indicate that 1a, 2a, and 2b have significant cytotoxicity against HepG-2 whereas 1b has a growth-promotion effect.
