In recent decades, there has been an important increase in the rapidity of the development of new processes using supercritical fluids. From the initial development of extraction processes using carbon dioxide, we have moved on to the generation of new materials and the study of new processes using this technology. In practically all cases, the common link is the development of a sustainable process that is more environmentally friendly compared to conventional processes. The use of less polluting solvents or the generation of bioenergy in high-pressure reaction processes are some of the main advantages of using this technology.
This Special Issue of AppliedChem will focus on "Supercritical Techniques and Green Chemistry". We are open to contributions (original research articles and high-quality reviews), covering the challenges and achievements in the study of new green processes using supercritical fluids. We want to draw attention to research involving the use of supercritical fluids as a solvent or as a reaction medium for the generation of high value-added products in various industrial sectors (biomedical, food, energy, waste treatment, construction…).
Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Supercritical fluid extraction;
- Supercritical fluid impregnation;
- New materials produced by supercritical fluids;
- Reactions in supercritical fluids.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. AppliedChem is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
