Six podocarpane-type trinorditerpenes were isolated from the bark of Taiwania cryptomerioides. Their structures, 14-hydroxy-13-methoxy-8,11,13- podocarpatrien-7-one (1), 13-hydroxy-12-methoxy-8,11,13-podocarpatriene (2), 12-hydroxy-13-methoxy-8,11,13-podocarpatriene (3), 14-hydroxy-13-methoxy- 8,11,13-podocarpatriene (4), 13-hydroxy-8,11,13-podocarpatriene (5), and 13,14-dihydroxy-8,11,13-podocarpatrien-7-one (6), were determined principally from spectral evidence.
