      The two important characteristics of 4-phenyl coumarin derivatives,i.e., the colour reaction with magnesium and hydrochloric acid and the transformation with alkali and mercuric oxide into coumarilic acids are shown to be characteristics of the group by the study of more members. The coloured product is somewhat similar to flavylium salts. Calophyllolide does not give marked colour reaction probably due to the presence of acyl group. Mercuric oxide-alkali method is specially convenient for the preparation of 3-phenyl coumarilic acids since the alternative bromination method does not work satisfactorily with 5-substituted coumarins.
