, consequently increasing its resistance to the action of flame [ 18 ].
We believe that, apart from barrier effects, the lumen of the HNTs plays the leading role in decreasing the flammability of the nanocomposites. During the initial degradation stage of

; therefore, SFC has lower mass transfer resistance between stationary phase and mobile phase than HPLC. The viscosity of SF is close to that of gas, and the density is similar to that of certain liquid, which facilitates lower pressure drop at relatively high
precisely specified points along the reactor (residence time). The high heat exchange efficiency allows rapid change of reaction conditions. The pressure resistance enables operation in superheated solvents. A, B, C, D = reagents; I = intermediates; P
