A study of the miscibilities of liquids in carbon dioxide

In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This study has examined the miscibilities of entrainers with supercritical carbon dioxide under a range of experimental conditions. Binary supercritical fluid mixtures are being used more frequently to enhance separations, influence reactions, modify supercritical chromatographic systems, etc., and consequently, there is increasing interest in the phase behaviour of these mixtures. This thesis has examined this behaviour in a number of systems, of carbon dioxide and C1 to C2 solvents, particularly the haloalkanes. [Continues.]
