Abstract: Supercritical fluid technology (SFT) is recently one of the most new techniques, which has been interested various fields of related chemical industries. SFT is the most effective and practical technology with eco-friendly, energy-savings, and high efficiency as the technique using the advantages of supercritical fluid such as high solvation power, solubility, mass transfer rate, and diffusion rate. Especially, it is necessary to analyze, evaluate, and develop the potential of application techniques using SFT with these characterizations. Therefore in this review, the phase behavior in supercritical fluid at high temperature and pressure of monomers/polymers for the optimization of polymerization process are briefly described, and the preparation of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) in supercritical fluid using supercritical polymerization and the performance evaluation of MIPs are introduced.
