Coumarins are a group of aromatic benzopyrones consisting of fused benzene and alpha pyrone
Kava contains kavalactones, pipermethysticine and pyrone
; these make it antimicrobial, antiseptic, stimulant, analgesic, antispasmodic, nervine and tonic.
Kojic acid is a natural pyrone
produced from fungal fermentation from various types of carbon substrates in the presence of fungi [1, 2].
Kojic acid [21, 22], a natural pyrone
which carries one C=O and two OH groups, is envisaged to have similar properties of natural anthocyanins dyes for its ability to bind with Ti[O.sub.2].
Flavonoids comprise approximately 6,000 compounds that are characterized and are distinguished from other aromatic compounds by having a common phenylchromanone structure (C6-C3-C6) consisting of two benzene aromatic rings (A and B rings) linked by three carbons that are usually in an oxygenated central pyrone
ring (C ring) [11-13].
Meanwhile, Qura-tul-Ain D/o Mohammad Mansha got degree in the subject of Chemistry after approval of her thesis titled "Synthetic Studies of Condensed Pyrone
(2013) also reported that pyrone
polyketides found in the cone snail Conus rolani are synthesized by bacteria.
Presence of surface functional groups such as carboxyl, lactone, phenol, carbonyl, ether, pyrone
and chromene gives activated carbon an acid-base character (Rodriguez-Reinoso and Molina-Sabio, 1998).
Synthesis of the desired pyrone
was accomplished utilizing a Jacobsen asymmetric hetero-Diels-Alder reaction between Danishefsky's diene and an optically pure aldehyde prepared in two steps from chiral pool.

-OH and their M-O coordination; (c) No shift of lactone vC=O at 1710 (s) [cm.sup.-1]; and vC-O-C at 1010 (s) [cm.sup.-1] suggests noninvolvement in complex formation; shift of hydrazide, phenolic vC-O and vC=N indicate participation in complexation.
