O-methyldalbergin and related 4-phenylcoumarins are markedly different from ordinary coumarins in their behaviour towards alkali. They are stable in boiling alkali and on addition of mercuric oxide yield coumarilic acids. Phenyl-coumarilic acids undergo decarboxylation readily when boiled with aqueous alcoholic mercuric chloride to yield phenyl substituted coumarones.
