Investigations of the stem and root bark of Myrica arborea (Myricaceae) have yielded two novel diarylheptanoids, myricarborin and 11-O-β-D-xylopyranosylmyricanol along with the known myricanol and 5-O-β-D-glucopyranosylmyricanol. The structures of the novel compounds were determined by spectroscopic methods. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
