Fundamentals and Modeling of Supercritical Precipitation Processes

Pp. 41-51 (11)

Angel Martin and Maria Jose Cocero


Precipitation processes based on the use of supercritical fluids have undergone considerable development during the last years. One of the main pending tasks at this moment is the development of a systematic procedure for the design and scale-up of these processes. This requires not only empirical knowledge, but also information about the fundamentals of the process. This work aims to review the published literature dealing with a fundamental investigation and modeling of supercritical fluid precipitation processes.
