NMR and NP-HPLC-UV profiling of the exudate of Salvia corrugata revealed that its secondary metabolite composition was largely dominated by a-hydroxy-b-isopropyl-benzoquinone diterpenoids. Among them, four diterpenes not described previously were isolated and identified as fruticulin C (3), 7a-methoxy-19- acetoxy-royleanone (4), 7a,19-diacetoxy-royleanone (5), and 7-dehydroxy-conacytone (7). In addition, the known diterpenes fruticulin A (1), demethyl-fruticulin A (2) and 7a-O-methyl-conacytone (6) were also obtained. The isolated compounds were evaluated for their cancer chemopreventive activity by measuring quinone reductase induction activity and histone deacetylase inhibition. Three compounds (1, 2 and 5) showed promising activity.
