Interactions between solute and solvent in supercritical fluids (SCFs) are of fundamental importance because small changes in pressure or temperature near the critical point may alter reactivity in chemical and biochemical processes, and were examined such as those for ester synthesis catalyzed by a lipase in supercritical carbon dioxide and for a FT-IR study on the structures of reverse microemulsions in supercritical ethane. We previously conducted ester synthesis from acyl donors and terpene… CONTINUE READING
