The potential use of organic solvent extracts of Diospyros lotus L. was analyzed by using FT-IR, GC-MS, and MTT. The results showed that the Diospyros lotus L. extracts contained many kinds of bioactive organic ingredients with antibacterial, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory activities. Meanwhile the extracts have significant effect on HEGP2 and SGC-7091, whicn can be used as anticancer medicine. Therefore, it provides a scientific foundation for potential application prospects in the fields of biomedicine, skin care products and other fields.
