Abstract
Supercritical fluids have a great potential for wide fields of processes. Although CO2 is still one of the most used supercritical gases, for special purposes propane or even fluorinated-chlorinated fluids have also been tested. The specific characteristics of supercritical fluids behavior were analyzed such as for example the solubility's of different components and the phase equilibria between the solute and solvent. The application at industrial scale (decaffeination of tea and coffee, hop extraction or removal of pesticides from rice), activity in supercritical extraction producing total extract from the raw material or different fractions by using the fract...
