Rodgersia aesculifolia is a perennial herb wide-distributed in China, and has been used as herbal medicine with long history. Ethanol and diethyl ether extraction were used to explore the bioactive and bioenergy ingredients in leaves and stems of Rodgersia aesculifolia grown at high altitudes in China. The results showed that the Rodgersia aesculifolia grown at high altitude has not only great biomedical value, but also been used as bioenergy materials. In addition, quinic acid and butylated hydroxytoluene were firstly discovered in leaves and stems of fresh Rodgersia aesculifolia grown at high altitudes. As biologically active ingredients, their relative contents are relatively high. All these results have provided a theoretical basis for further utilization of bioactive and bioenergy components from Rodgersia aesculifolia grown at high altitudes.
