Abstract

The field of sample extraction and clean-up of organic compounds from food has seen rapid developments during the last decade. Important reasons for this have been (a) the rapidly increasing costs for manual work, (b) the need for large throughput in process control and c) environmental concerns, which have resulted in legislation to restrict the use of halogenated organic solvents. Among the approaches being used to develop these requirements are supercritical fluid extraction, microwave extraction, and most recently, accelerated solvent extraction.
