Chemistry: Challenges and Solutions

The Phase of Supercritical Fluids (animation)

Under extremely high temperatures and pressures, fluids (gases and liquids) enter a fourth phase of matter: supercritical fluids. Supercritical fluids are no longer a liquid or a gas, but somewhere in between, in which a given amount takes up more volume than a liquid but less volume than a gas.
