Solubility in supercritical carbon dioxide.


Solubility in supercritical carbon dioxide.

Gupta, Ram B. and Jae-Jin Shim.

CRC Press


909 pages




Mining research articles, reports, and theses so as to make life easier for chemical engineers in many industries, Gupta (chemical engineering, Auburn U.) and Shim (chemical engineering, Yeungnam U., Republic of Korea) have present over 1,200 data tables in an accessible format. The tables present experimental solubility data and are referenced and indexed; empirical and theoretical correlations or predictions are not addressed (except for a brief discussion of modeling in the introduction). Supercritical fluids play a part in the extraction of, for example, petrochemicals, foods, pharmaceutical, fragrances, and flavors as well as in polymerization and biological reactions, the cleaning of semiconductors and precision machinery; aerogel manufacturing; textile dyeing; metal de-binding; and the manufacture of micro- and nano-particles.
