Abstract

The potential of supercritical extraction (SCE), a separation process in which a gas above its critical temperature is used as a solvent, has been widely recognized in the recent years. One important potential application of supercritical extraction is in the recovery of polar organic compounds from aqueous solutions. Such mixtures arise very frequently as products of biochemical syntheses. In many cases, the costs of the energy-intensive separations are quite high. It is the objective of an ongoing research project at MIT to investigate the applicability of SCE for such separations.
