Summary and Info
Supercritical fluids are gases or liquids that demonstrate unique properties under high pressure, such as readily dissolving substances that would otherwise be insoluble. Supercritical fluids have gained wide attention as potential reaction media in recent years since the method is environmentally friendly and alleviates the need for toxic solvents. This is the first book to provide comprehensive treatment of the subject. Featuring contributions from researchers worldwide, this practical work describes standard reaction procedures and protocols as well as details on the necessary equipment.
