By means of the thermogravimetric analyzerr, the Vitex negundo wood flour with different extraction materials was heated under the control temperature. And finally the relationship between temperature change and material mass and moisture content is analyzed by TG curve. By gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of the chemical components of the vitex negundo wood, explore its contain more sugar, oleamide, oleic acid, phenol and small amounts of formaldehyde, explain vitex negundo wood in food, medicine, industry, etc.. The fast Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was used to detect the characteristics of Vitex negundo wood flour and the organic solvent of Vitex negundo wood which was added into the extract. And the main components of extraction are aromatic, acids, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, alkanes, phenols and ethers. Using thermal desorption gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (TD-GC-MS) analysis to analyze the volatile compounds of vitex negundo wood, it can contains a lot of intermediates for formation of organic compounds, and has certain phenol and aldehyde components can be used for medicine.
