Abstract

6-Methyl-3-phenylcoumarins 3–6 were designed, synthesized and evaluated as monoamine oxidase A and B (MAO-A and MAO-B) inhibitors. The synthesis of these new compounds (resveratrol–coumarin hybrids) was carried out with good yield by a Perkin reaction, from the 5-methylsalicylaldehyde and the corresponding phenylacetic acid. They show high selectivity to the MAO-B isoenzyme, with IC50 values in the nanomolar range. Compound 5 is the most active compound and is several times more potent and selective than the reference compound, R-()-deprenyl.
