α-Benzoyloxypaeoniflorin (1), a new antioxidant monoterpene α-glycoside anomer was isolated fromPaeonia suffruticosa along with known compounds, β-benzoyloxypaeoniflorin (2), paeonolide, paeoniflorin and mudanpioside H. The structure of1 has been determined by comparing spectral data with those of β-benzoyloxypaeoniflorin(2). Compound1 exhibited moderately potent radical scavenging activity on DPPH radical.
