Two new sesquiterpenes, godotol A (1) and godotol B (2), were isolated from Pluchea arabica. Their structures were determined by analysis of NMR data. The absolute configurations of 1 and 2 were established by Mosher ester methodology. The godotols displayed weak activity against bacteria and the brine shrimp larvae. They were also inactive in the DPPH antioxidant assay.
