Ferula gummosa, a native medicinal plant growing in Iran, was studied in this literature. Two different extraction methods were used for a comparative study of Volatile Oils Extracted from aerial parts of Ferula gummosa: Hydrodistillation (HD) and Carbon Nanotube Profile. Volatile oils analyzed by GC and GC-MS presented 32 and 34 components constituting 85.792% and 84.903% of the total oils, respectively. Carbon Nanotube Profile were richer in oxygenated sesquiterpenes. Their major compounds were such as β-moaliene (19.431%), β-Gurjunene (10.23%), Allo-aromadendrene (7. et al), Aromandrene (6.528%). The antioxidant activities were studied with the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH•) radical scavenging method. Generally, methanolic extract showed high antioxidant activities. Comparison between hydrodistillation and Carbon Nanotube Profile presented numerous distinctions. Several advantages with Carbon Nanotube Profile were observed, This method is a new, fast and easy.
