The objective of this paper is to present a review of the field of reactions in supercritical fluids (SCF). Significant solvent effects on the reaction rate and the reaction equilibrium constant around the critical point and the supercritical region are discussed. Then a variety of applications of supercritical fluids to reaction processes, including coal extraction, biomass hydrolysis in supercritical water(SCW), rapid oxidation in SCW, solid catalyzed reactions, enzymatic reactions, and hydrothermal crystallization in SCW, were introduced.
