Utilization of Supercritical Fluid Processing for Purification, Dissolution and Infiltration

Utilization of Supercritical Fluid Processing for Purification, Dissolution and Infiltration

03/21/2017, 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Meeting Room 1


The Supercritical Fluid Process has been used in production for purification of organic materials for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications . Significant success has been achieved in the utilization of this process; however, the lack of understanding and knowledge of the technology has prevented increased usage. This paper describes the process in detail, provides advantages and disadvantages of the process as well as examples of existing applications, and discusses possible areas of further exploitation in the Interphex community. Applications include purification, molecular weight distribution, chemical separation, dissolution, and uniform infiltration of medications.
