Supercritical Fluid Extraction: Carbon Dioxide
Characteristic of Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE)
SFE provides high extraction efficiency and high extraction rates owing to the SCF physicochemical properties such as low viscosity and high diffusivity.
Selective extraction of the target component can be easily controlled, because the solvating power of SCF can be easily regulated by changing the temperature and pressure.
SFE is suitable for...
