The renaissance of supercritical fluid chromatography

Early development of supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) was described as high-pressure or dense gas chromatography (HPGC or DGC) and low boiling point hydrocarbons were used as the supercritical mobile phase. Its conception was intended to combine the benefits of liquid chromatography with the efficiency of gas chromatography.
