Abstract: The solubility of polymer-supercritical CO2 binary systems was studied, and the effects of co-solvent on the solubility were discussed. The polymers used in this experiment were from commercial coating resins,and AR toluene and cyclohexane produced domestically were used as co-solvent. The results show that the addition of co-solvent increases the solubility remarkably (see Tab. 1).The high-pressure phase behavior of polymer-solvent-supercritical CO2 ternary systems was also investigated experimentally. The effects of component's character and their concentration on p-T phase diagram were discussed. It was found that as CO2 concentration increases, the diagram changed from L-LV boundary to steeper L-LL boundary. the L-LV boundary was not sensitive to different polymers.
