Salvia bucharica belonging to the family Lamiaceae (labiatae), afforded a new aromatic ester named buchariate [1-(p-hydroxybenzoyloxy)-3-oxo-octane (1)] along with twelve known constituents for the first time from our investigated source. The structures of all the isolated constituents were determined through spectroscopic techniques and comparison with literature values. The structure of new constituent (1) was elucidated through extensive 2-D NMR experiments.
