Carpacin is a naturally occurring organic compound first isolated from the Carpano tree (an unidentified Cinnamomum species of the family Lauraceae which is native to Bougainville Island), from which it derives its name. It is a biosynthetic precursor of the more complex lignan-dimer, carpanone. Carpacin is classified as a phenylpropanoid.
