This article presents a general introduction to the physics and dynamics of supercritical fluids and the critical point. It is organized in two parts: In a first section, the nature of the critical point is discussed and its influence on the properties of supercritical fluids is presented; In a second section, we then examine the dynamic processes induced by these peculiar properties, concentrating on heat and mass transfer and more generally on relaxation phenomena. INTRODUCTION Although… CONTINUE READING
