Strobilanthes ciliatus is one of the species endemic to Western Ghats, India. Chemical constituents of Strobilanthes ciliates were investigated by means of chromatographic techniques. A new compound 4-Acetyl-2, 7-dihydroxy-1, 4, 8-triphenyl-octane-3, 5-dione was isolated. The structure was elucidated on the basis of spectral data (IR, MS and NMR),mainly 1Dand 2D NMR data.
