Salvadiol (1), a triterpene with a novel carbon skeleton has been isolated from the hexane soluble part of Salvia bucharica and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The NMR data were rationalized on the basis of structure 1 determined by the X-ray technique. A biogenetic pathway for salvadiol is proposed.
