Tepanone, (2E)-1-phenyl-3-(2-hydroxy-3,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)prop-2-enone was isolated from roots and stembark of Ellipeia cuneifolia. The structure was deduced from spectroscopic data and confirmed by synthesis of the methylated derivative, methyltepanone. Methyltepanone exists as the two readily interconvertible trans and cis isomers.
