Torreya grandis can only survive in China because of its unique living habits. In recent years, because of the increasing demand for wood, the social value of Torreya grandis has become progressively high. However, people ignored the use of its bark, believing that only the timber was of value. In order to explore a new way to utilize the resources of Chinese Torreya bark, methanol and ethanol were used to extract the powder of Chinese Torreya bark. The extracts were analyzed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The pyrolysis products of catalytic cracking products and high efficiency extraction products were studied by GC-MS. The results showed that the extracts from the bark of Torreya grandis contain a large number of bioactive components, and these substances can be advantageous for human use. The chemical constituents of different extracts from the bark of Torreya grandis were studied, and a theoretical basis for the rational utilization of the bark was provided.
