Abstract: Drying, specifically supercritical CO2 (SCCO2) -based drying, is a crucial step in the manufacture of silica aerogels and is also one of the most time and energy intensive. The aim of the present work is to elucidate the kinetics of this process in order to facilitate its acceleration. An apparatus was developed which is capable of continuously measuring ethanol extraction rates as a fun... read more
