From the roots of Acronychia pedunculata (L.) Miq. (Rutaceae) collected in Taiwan, six known and three new acetophenones have been isolated. The new compounds were named acrophenones D (1), E (2), and F (3). Of the acetophenones isolated in this study, prenylacronylin (4) and acronyculatin D (10) exhibited significant inhibitory activity against 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate-induced Epstein-Barr virus early antigen activation in Raji cells.
