Abstract In addition to the known cordiaquinones A and B, two novel meroterpenoid naphthoquinones, named cordiaquinones J and K, have been isolated from the roots of Cordia curassavica. Their structures were elucidated by spectrometric methods including EI, D/CI mass spectrometry,H-1,C-13 and 2D-NMR experiments. The four naphthoquinones demonstrated antifungal activities against Cladosporium cucumerinum, Candida albicans and toxic properties against larvae of the yellow fever-transmitting mosquito Aedes aegypti.
