From the whole plant of Salvia roborowskii, four new germacrane sesquiterpene esters, 3β,6β,8α-triacetoxy-4β,5α-epoxy-1-oxogermacr-10(14)-ene, 3β,6β,8α-triacetoxy-4β,5α-epoxygermacr-1 (10)E-ene, 3β,6β,8α-triacetoxy-4β,5α:1α,10β-diepoxygermacrane and 6β-acetoxyglechomafuran were isolated, and their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including 2D NMR techniques (1H-1H COSY and 1H-1H NOESY for 1).
