Estimation of lipid properties related to supercritical fluid extraction

The correlations for vapor pressures of fatty acids, fatty acid methyl and ethyl esters, and simple triglycerides were given based on the available data in the literature. The developed equations enable easy estimation of the critical properties. The group contribution methods were used to develop the estimation method. The estimated properties of the most common lipids were tabulated and the differences between the estimation methods were critically discussed.
