The paper presents the obtaining, characterization, encapsulation and the antioxidant activity evaluation of some Matricaria chamomilla L. extracts. The Matricaria chamomilla L. essential oil has been obtained by steam distillation and steam distillation-extraction method. In order to evaluate the antioxidant capacity of chamomile, this was extracted with ethanolic solution, in different concentrations. The essential oil was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), spectrophotometry and complexes with β-cyclodextrin by thermogravimetry (TG-DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
