Pharmaceutical Extractions

Supercritical fluids can be applied in numerous pharmaceutical areas including chromatography, drug discovery, and the synthesis, purification, and extraction of drug compounds. In addition, many drug delivery applications provide increased benefits compared to conventional techniques.

Supercritical CO2 is the most widely used supercritical fluid in the pharmaceutical industry because it has a low critical temperature (31°C), is non-flammable, non-toxic, inexpensive, and is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).
