Subcritical Water - Uses for Supercritical Fluids

Add Subcritical Water to Your

Supercritical CO2 System


Why Subcritical H2O:


  • Substitute for ethanol & polar solvents
  • Lower energy than steam distillation
  • All natural processing platform - complimentary with SC-CO2
  • Non-toxic
  • Inexpensive
  • Readily obtained
  • Easily disposed of
  • Sample does not need to be dried
  • Variable polarity (e)
  • Subcritical Water and Supercritical CO2 in ONE System
