In development of the super critical water upgrading technology of bitumen, it is important to understand the a behavior of water and bitumen in the reaction chamber. Thus, water and bitumen, or its fractions divided by vacuum distillation or heptane extraction, were put into the visible-type autoclave. Dissolution of bitumen or its fractions to water was observed with increasing temperature above critical temperature of water. The heavier component of bitumen dissolved in water only in a super critical region of water. The component that scarcely dissolves into the supercritical water is vacuum residue. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
