Heterocycles occupy a salient place in chemistry due to their wide range of activity in the fields of drug design, photochemistry, agrochemicals, dyes, and so on. Amongst all, Pyranocoumarin scaffold is considered as one of the most promising heterocycles found in natural and synthetic sources and has been shown to possess various biological activities including anti-inflammatory, anti-HIV, antitubercular, anti HBV, anti-dyslipidemic, antiplatelet, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial. Therefore, the objective of this review is to focus on important pyranocoumarin analogs with various biological activities.
