Eucalyptusdimers A–C, three dimeric phellandrene-derived meroterpenoids featuring an unprecedented, fused skeleton between two phellandrene and two acylphloroglucinol subunits, along with one biogenetically related intermediate, (±)-eucalyprobusone A, were isolated from the fruits of Eucalyptus robusta. Their structures and absolute configurations were elucidated using spectroscopic data, X-ray crystallography, and electronic circular dichroism analysis. The isolated meroterpenoids were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory, acetylcholinesterase inhibitory, and protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B inhibitory effects.
