Abstract: Three coumarins viz; C1 (Umbelliferone), C2 (Umckalin) and novel coumarin glycoside C3, were isolated from Pelargonium fragrans Willd root. Isolated compounds were identified on the basis of their physico-chemical, UV spectral data, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and EIMS. These compounds were isolated for the first time from the plant. Significant antiwormal effect on fresh earthworms (Allolobophora caliginosa), remarkable antioxidant activities and strong antifungal activity were recorded on the extract, fractions and isolated compounds.
