This study reviewed antioxidants and various enzymic physiological functions of Korean ash tree extractives that contains coumarine and ester component in order to examine the practical possibility of those materials as pharmaceutical and cosmetic additive applications. first, in the experiment of enzymic physiological activity, the electron donating ability showed 62.00% at 1ppm and over 90% at 10ppm or higher concentration, and the pseudo SOD ability showed 39% at the concentration of 2000ppm and 84.73% at the concentration of 5000ppm. Second, the inhibition activity of xanthine oxidase showed a relatively low inhibition effect of 45.57% at 200ppm, and the inhibition effect of tyrosinase showed 57.51% at 2000ppm. However, it showed a very low inhibition effect at the concentration of 500ppm or less. Third, the lipid oxidation, when Cu$\^$2+/ion was used as an oxidation accelerator, showed the inhibition effect of 82% at the concentration of 10ppm, and when Fe$\^$2+/ion was used also as the oxidation accelerator, it showed a very outstanding effect of 60% and more at 100ppm. Conclusively it is clear that the extracts of Korean ash tree bark can be used as cosmetic and pharmaceutical additive agents due to their excellent activities as antioxidant and enzymic physiological functions of it.
