Compatibility of the SCFE process with extraction of heat sensitive products
Heat sensitive compounds are those whose chemical composition gets altered when they are subjected to heat. Some of the extraction techniques such as solvent extraction and hydrodistillation use heat to separate the required compound (called target molecule) from the raw material. Supercritical fluid extraction (SCFE) and particularly one that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) as the…
