  3. Supercritical fluid as a solvent • Solvent are used in large amount in chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and natural products industry • In search of environmental friendly solvent, attentation has been paid to supercritical fluid for wide application in extraction,chromatograhy, particle design, reaction, drying etc.

  9. Bioactive compounds from Botanicals

  10. Particle design using supercritical fluid • Pharmaceutical, Nutraceutical, Cosmetic, Specialty chemistry industry • RESS: Rapid Expansion of Supercritical Solutions • Consist in solvating the product in the fluid and rapidly depressurizing this solution through an adequate nozzle(<100micro m to 20 micro m diameter) • Attractive due to the absence of organic solvent use • Its application is restricted to products that present a reasonable solubility • in supercritical carbon dioxide(low polarity compounds) • GAS or SAS: Gas(or Supercritical fluid) Anti-Solvent • Consist in decreasing the solvent power of a polar liquid solvent in which the substrate • is dissolved, by saturating it with carbon dioxide in supercritical conditions, • causing the substrate precipitation or recrystallization

  11. Rapid expansion of supercritical solutions (RESS) • Depressurizing this solution through a heated nozzle into a low pressure chamber in order to cause an extremely rapid nucleation of the substrate(s) in form of very small particles • In the precipitation unit, the supercritical solution is expanded through a nozzle that must be reheated toavoid plugging by substrate(s) precipitation • The morphology of the resulting solid material both depends on the material structure crystalline or amorphous, composite or pure. • The RESS parameters; • temperature, pressure drop, distance of impact of the jet against the surface, • dimensions of the atomization vessel, nozzle geometry

  12. RESS Process

  13. RESS is a very attractive process as it is simple and relatively easy to implement at least at small scale when a single nozzle can be used. • Extrapolation to a significant production size requires either a multi-nozzle system or use of a porous sintered disk through which pulverization occurs, • In both the case, particle size distribution is not easy to control and may be much wider than in the case of a single nozzle. • Particle harvesting is complex • The most important limitation of RESS development lies in the too low solubility of compoundsin supercritical fluids • In most cases, use of a co-solvent to increase solubility in the fluid is not feasible

  14. Supercritical anti-solvent and related process (GAS/SAS) • In this process, the supercritical fluid is used as an anti-solvent that causes precipitation of the substrate(s) dissolved initially in a liquid solvent. • A batch of solution is expanded several-fold by mixing with a dense gas in a vessel. • Due to the dissolution of the compressed gas the expanded solvent has a lower solvent strength than the pure solvent. • The mixture becomes supersaturated and solute precipitates in microparticles. • This process has been called gas anti-solvent(GAS) or supercritical anti-solvent(SAS) recrystallization

  15. GAS/SAS Antisolvent Process

  16. Spraying the solution through an atomization nozzle as fine droplets into compressed carbon dioxide. • The dissolution of the supercritical fluid into the liquid droplets is accompanied by a large volume expansion and, consequently a reduction in the liquid solvent power causing a sharp rise in the supersaturation within the liquid mixture and the consequent formation of small and uniform particles. This spray process has been called Aerosol solvent extraction system (ASES) process

  32. SC-CO2 Extraction of Bio-oil (set-up and samples)

  33. Up gradation of Bio-oil using SCF Biooil as such can not be used as transportation fuel as it contains high percentage of water (~ 45 wt %). Also, water decreases its calorific value, It forms azeotrope with organic compounds, It increases percentage of oxygen and results in polymerization at room temperature in few weeks. Methods for removal of water: Solvent extraction Supercritical CO2 extraction (Green process)
