The relationships between the inhibition of steroid 11β-hydroxylase, aldosterone synthase and aromatase enzymes and the electronic structure of a group of coumarin derivatives was analyzed. We obtained statistically significant results for the inhibition of the three enzymes. Some specific molecule-enzyme interactions are suggested. The corresponding pharmacophores were built. Finally, some suggestions that could improve the inhibitory capacity are proposed.
