Yeh, 4 4* S. C. Huang, and H. T. Li Cinnamomum macrostemon Hayata is a medium-sized evergreen tree; it is endemic in Taiwan and distributed at medium altitudes throughout the island . In the course of screening for biologically and chemically novel agents from Formosan Lauraceous plants, C. macrostemon Hayata was chosen for further phytochemical investigation. Its branchlets appear to be erect, slender, and glabrous, and it buds with nine imbricate seales, scales with brown hairs in winter. Leaves appear to be chartaceous, somewhat polished above, dull beneath, ovate-lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate, 10–15 cm long, 3–4 cm wide, acuminate to obtuse apex, acute or suddenly acute at base, with three main veins, nerves finely prominent on both sides, not fragrant when crushed; petioles appear to be 1 cm long and are widely furrowed above . Previously, we isolated 12 compounds, including two fatty acids, one coumarin, four benzenoids, two steroids, one triterpenoid, one lignan, and one dibenzocycloheptene from the twigs of this plant .
