A new method for the extraction of Norflurazon residues in cotton seeds using supercritical CO2 as the extracting fluid is described. The supercritical fluid extraction results were compared with those of the classical procedure using liquid extraction. All SFE experiments were performed using a home-made system. The method presented, besides being faster and more economical than existing methods, showed better recovery, with higher selectivity for Norflurazon extraction.
