Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) can be a powerful technique in the analysis of food and environmental samples. Problems with extraction efficiency can occur when the matrix contains large amounts of water or if the analyte in very poplar. Nevertheless, recent work has shown that these limitations can be overcome by either selecting an appropriate modifier to be added to the supercritical carbon dioxide or by using an absorbent such as Hydromatrix to remove water.
