Subcritical water: an alternative to polar petrochemical solvents
 11 Août 2016

Water in the subcritical state is an alternative to polar liquids and semi-polar solvents such as methanol, ethanol, and acetone.

Additional benefits are associated with its use:
  • No toxicity, "Green" solvent
  • No residual organic solvent in the final product/extract
  • Non-flammable, non-explosive: less expensive installation (ATEX zone not necessary)
  • Modulation of properties by adjusting the temperature of assay - high temperature allows chemical modification of the material (e.g. hydrolysis)
Examples of applications:
  • Insoluble fibres extraction (e.g. hemicellulose, lignin,…)
  • Antioxidant molecules (e.g. polyphenols,…)
  • Proteins Extraction
CELABOR, with its experience of 20 years in pressurized processes, is a partner of choice for your extraction developments in subcritical water
