One problem encountered in practice is that CO2 is immiscible with water; this makes the extraction of liquids or wet samples difficult. The quantity of food required is 1–5 g, and the time of extraction is 10–60 min (Sparr Eskilsson and Björklund 2000). Solid foods require homogenization without the aid of a liquid, especially water. Grinding of the matrix increases surface area for extraction, but presence of moisture limits the diffusion of the SF inside the matrix (Lehotay 1997; Camel 2001; Buldini et al.

1995; Miur and Sverko 2006). For the commonly used capillary columns (DB-1, DB-5, DB-1701, BPX-5, HT-8, SE-54, SIL8, SP-2330, and CP-SIL-9) several authors have reported critical separation of PCBs 28/31, 49/52, 77/110, 101/84, 118/149, 105/153/152. When a single-column is used for complex pollutant mixture analysis, the result might be lack of resolution and identification. For this reason, the trend is toward congener-specific analysis (Liem 1999b; Marriott et al. 2003; Bianco et al. 2008; van Leeuwen and de Boer 2008).

When the matrix is not solid, it must be retained on an appropriate support, such as a natural matrix or a synthetic support, such as glass wool or diatomaceous earth, to ensure an effective attack by the SF (Luque de Castro and JimenezCarmona 2000; Smith 2003). The nature of the matrix and its physical properties are very important for the success of the extraction. One problem encountered in practice is that CO2 is immiscible with water; this makes the extraction of liquids or wet samples difficult.
