The experimental solubility of dibenzofuran in near-critical and supercritical carbon dioxide and the solid–liquid–vapor (SLV) equilibrium line for the CO2 + dibenzofuran system are reported. The built in-house static view cell apparatus used in these measurements is described. The solubility of naphthalene in supercritical CO2 and the CO2 + naphthalene SLV line are also determined in order to assess the reliability and accuracy of the measurement technique. The solubility of dibenzofuran in carbon dioxide is determined at 301.3, 309.0, 319.2, 328.7 and 338.2 K in the 6–30 MPa pressure range. Solubility data are correlated using the Chrastil model and the Peng–Robinson equation of state. This equation is also used to predict the CO2 + dibenzofuran SLV line. Results show the feasibility of using supercritical CO2 to extract dibenzofuran.
