Abstract: In this study, an analytical method based on Design of Experiments and response surface methodology for the separation of lycopene, beta‐carotene, coenzyme Q10, and lutein was developed by ultra‐high performance supercritical fluid chromatography technique. A Central Composite Design was used to evaluate the influence of temperature, pressure, and ethanol percentage on the retention and separation factors of these compounds. In the designed experiments, the temperature was varied between 25 and 50 °C (298 and 323 K), the pressure within the interval of 1500 and 2200 psi (10 and 15 MPa), and the ethanol percentage between 15 and 24 (v/v) %. Each variable was tested at 3 levels and 5 replicated central points were added. It was found for the studied system that the ethanol percentage and pressure were the parameters that most influenced the retention factors whereas the ethanol percentage, pressure, and temperature affected the separation factors. Quadratic models were necessary to describe the retention and separation of these compounds. Furthermore, interactions among the factors were observed, justifying the DOE approach used in this work. Considering the retention and separation factors, the selected operating conditions for further experiments were: 15.5 % of ethanol at 40 °C (313 K) and 1500 psi (10 MPa)
