Extraction of chlorophenoxy acid herbicides from soil samples with supercritical carbon dioxide as extractant and tetrabutylammonium hydroxide and methyl iodide as derivatization agents was investigated. The extraction was carried out at 400 atm and 80 degrees C for 15 min static, followed by 15 min dynamic, at a carbon dioxide flow rate of approximately 1.5 mL/min (as liquid). The use of other derivatization agents (trimethylphenylammonium hydroxide, benzyltrimethylammonium chloride, and benzyltriethylammonium chloride) proved to be less effective than the tetrabutylammonium hydroxide/methyl iodide combination.
