    Welcome to the Supercritical Fluids Laboratory located in 217 and 220 White Hall, home of the Chemical Engineering Department. This laboratory has been built over the past 15 years and has significant capabilities in using compressed and supercritical water, carbon dioxide, hexane and other fluids. The goal of the lab is to explore environmentally friendly solvents for use in the materials processing, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. We also strive to understand the thermodynamics and mass transfer properties of chemicals, mixtures, and polymers in these fluids.
