A survey for cinnamic and benzoic acids in 22 species representing the 10 extant genera of the Cycadaceae revealed the presence of p-coumaric, caffeic, ferulic, p-hydroxybenzoic, protocatechuic, and vanillic acids in all of the species. Two genera had detectable quantities of 2,4-dihydroxy-benzoic acid. In addition sinapic acid was detected in two genera, indicating that it has a wider distribution in vascular plants than was previously indicated.
