Abstract

The solid solubilities of 2R,3β-dihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid (corosolic acid) in supercritical carbon dioxide (SCCO2) have been measured using a dynamic method at (308.15, 313.15, 323.15, and 333.15) K over a pressure range of (8 to 30) MPa. Prior to solubility measurements, the accuracy of the experimental apparatus was examined by measuring solubilities of squalene in SC-CO2 and comparing them with literature. The corosolic acid solubilities ranged from a corosolic acid mole fraction of 3.28 3 10-11 at 333.15 K and 8 MPa to 7.43 3 10-2 at 333.15 K and 30 MPa. The del Valle and Aguilera andMendez-Santiago and Teja (density-based) models were used to correlate the experimental data. The calculated solubilities showed good agreement with the experimental data in the temperature and pressure ranges studied.
