Tetradecyl ferulate and a new n-alkyl ester of 3-hydroxy-4-methoxy-trans-cinnamate (hexacosanylisoferulate) have been isolated from Cedrelinga catenaeformis Duke (Leguminoseae). The structures were determined by 1D- and 2D-NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, chemical transformations and finally from unambiguous synthesis. This is the first report of long chained cinnamic acid ester derivative from the genus.
