Abstract Text

Supercritical carbon dioxide has been used as a green solvent due to their well-known potential in biomaterials impregnation. The versatility of this technique enables the loading of implants with Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients which present several benefits when compared with traditional techniques to impregnate active compounds. In this review, we have summarized the recent progress achieved in supercritical CO2assisted impregnation of active compounds and therapeutic deep eutectic systems for biomedical applications.
