    Four undescribed racemic quinones, umbellatas Q-T, were isolated from the aerial parts of Morinda umbellata L. All enantiomers were separated on a chiral HPLC column, and their structures were elucidated by UV spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, HR-ESI-MS, 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, DP4+ NMR calculations, ECD spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Three of the racemes are polycyclic anthraquinones, and one is a rare racemic trimer of naphthoquinone-bisnaphthohydroquinones. (+)-Umbellata S exhibited potent cytotoxicity (IC50: 6.2-9.3 μM) against the A2780, HeLa, H7420, Ketr3 and SW 1990 human cancer cell lines. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
