Supercritical CO2’s Extraction Efficiency

Supercritical carbon dioxide isn’t just an efficient solvent for apolar compounds. In fact, if it’s combined with fluid modifiers like water, it becomes a very efficient solvent for medium polar and polar substances (caffeine for coffee decaffeination). The extraction efficiency is better than conventional technologies based on chemical solvents, due to the following features offered by supercritical CO2:
