Study on Biomedical Prospects of Benzene-Alcohol Extractives of Bamboo Leaves
Bamboo leaves has been used to heal some diseases in the Chinese Folk for a long time. In order to explore the wide biomedicine utilization, the chemical components of benzene-alcohol extractives from the fresh bamboo leaves was studied by Py-GC/MS. The results indicated that the main components were decanoic acid, 1,2,3-propanetriyl ester(5.6%), 9-octadecyne(3.21%), tricosane (2.88%), .gamma.-sitosterol(2.81%), phenylpropionic acid,.alpha.-amin o-2-fluoro-4-hydroxy-5- methoxy-(2.76%), stigmastan-3,5-diene(2.69%), 4h-benzo[f]pyrrolo[1,2-a][1,4]diaz epine, 4-(2-phenyl -propyl)-5,6- dihydro-(2.67%), vitamin e(2.51%), nonacosane(2.25%), tetratetracontane (2.25%), .beta.-tocopherol(2.04%), etc. So the benzene-alcohol extractives of bamboo leaves could be used as biomedicines.
