Editorial Reviews

The symposium was held in March 1996 in New Orleans, and generated 20 papers on recent developments in the increasing use of supercritical fluids for extractions for processing polymers and other materials, thermodynamics, recovering natural materials, chromatography, and environmental remediation and pollution prevention. Among the topics are extracting grinding and metal-cutting waste contaminated with oils, estimating physicochemical properties with supercritical fluid chromatography, extractions with reflex for processing citrus oil, extracting sage and coriander seed using near-critical carbon dioxide, and removing dioxins and stickies in recycled fibers and inactivating any microbes present.
