The potential use of leaves of Diospyros lotus L. was analyzed by using FT-IR, GC-MS and MTT through organic solvent extracts. The results showed that the leaves extracts of Diospyros lotus L. contains many kinds of bioactive organic ingredients with antibacterial, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory activities. Meanwhile the extracts have significant effect on HEGP2, SGC-7091, and K562. Therefore, it provides a scientific foundation for comprehensive application prospects in the fields of biomedicine, food, skin care products and other fields and turning waste into treasure.
