11th European Meeting on Supercritical Fluids

New Perspectives in Supercritical Fluids:
Nanoscience, Materials and Processing

The 11th European Meeting on Supercritical Fluids will be held from 4th to 7th of May (Sunday to Wednesday ). The scientific program will focus on those aspects at the frontier of new progresses in the field of applications of supercritical fluids. It will focus on the following topics:

1) Self-organized Soft Materials
2) New trends in Drug Delivery
3) Challenges in Theoretical Aspects
4) Crystalline polymorphism
5) Processing

I hope to see you there!

Supercritical Fluids transition...

In my everyday patrol of the internet looking for supercritical fluid stuffs, I've found these videos of the transition from supercritical fluid to liquid-gas equilibria.

The first one shows the aparatus employed, and the substance is benzene.

The second one, also shows the experimental setup. The liquid is ethane.

This 3rd one can be CO2, but it's not said.

An a second one, same "liquid" as previous one but at zero "g"

Finally, supercritical water transition.
