To solve a key technical issue that is limiting the use of Supercritical Fluids (SCFs), namely the relatively poor solvent power of many SCFs, which can spoil the economics of otherwise highly attractive processes. The network will target four areas of SCF chemistry (i) reactions with gases (e.g.

hydrogenation, oxidation, hydroformylation, etc), (ii) reactions in mixed SCF/Ionic liquid solvent systems, (iii) polymerisation and (iv) biocatalysis. These four areas are linked by a fifth, common theme of highpressure phase equilibria.
