In this review article, the following topics are discussed: the background; phase equilibrium considerations (binary mixtures and ternary mixtures); theory and data correlation; a tabulation of experimental studies; transport coefficients (diffusion coefficients, viscosity, Schmidt numbers, and mass transfer coefficients); and applications such as the separation of chemicals from water streams, processes for coffee and tea decaffeination, oil extraction from seeds and foods, the processing of low-vapor pressure oils, and the extraction of solvents, monomers, and fractionation of polymers, as well as the current status of applicational development.
