Supercritical fluids have the low viscosity of a gas and the high density of a liquid, making it impossible to liquefy the matter using any amount of pressure. However, it is possible to go from a gas to a liquid without crossing the boundary between the vapor and liquid phase using a supercritical fluid just by lowering the temperature of the liquid.
The densities and viscosity of a supercritical fluid are subject to change when pressure or temperature is tampered with, and the supercritical fluid of a substance can have very different properties than the regular fluids. For instance, water that is supercritical differs from regular water in the fact that it is non-polar and acidic.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
