Abstract
The report is a summary of work performed by PNL on the extraction of semivolatile organic materials (SVOCs), for example, polynuclear aromatic compounds, from various adsorbents and environmental matrices, using supercritical fluids (SCFs) as extractants. The results of the work show that supercritical fluids are effective extractants for many SVOCs, and are often competitive with conventional Soxhlet extraction. Advantages of SCFs over conventional methods include higher extraction efficiency, more rapid extraction, and reduced decomposition of thermally labile compounds.
