Methanol extracts of leaves of Diospyros glaucifolia and D. kaki were showed the scavenging activity of 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical. Chromatographical separation and purification of methanol extracts resulted in isolation of three new flavonol glycosides [2”-(E)-p-coumaroylmyricitrin (3), 3”-(E)-p-coumaroylmyricitrin (4) and mearsetin 3-O-β-glucronopyranoside (11)] along with known phenolic compounds. These structures were determined by means of spectroscopic analysis. The scavenging activities of DPPH radical of the isolated compounds were examined.
