Abstract


The date-plum bark have certain beneficial organic component for human health. The extracts samples were detected by FT-IR and GC-MS. As the results showed that main components of the extracts are alcohols, ketones, vitamin, ethers and aromatic compounds. Some kinds of bioactive organic ingredients, such as Lupeol, Glutinol and Sitosterol, have antibacterial, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory activities. The extracts also have obvious effect on HEGP2 and K562 and prevent cancer through MTT method. The results also show that extract ingredients by different organic solvent have a distinct difference. It suggests that different organic solvents could be used for specific extraction according to the actual production needs. Therefore this study provides a scientific foundation for comprehensive application prospects in the fields of biomedicine, cosmetics, skin care products. The date-plum bark have certain beneficial organic component for human health.
