The keto-enol tautomeric equilibrium constant, K, of ethyl acetoacetate in compressed and supercritical carbon dioxide was determined by using FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared) spectroscopy at three different temperatures. In order to investigate the effect of solvent density, the $CO_{2}$ pressure was systematically changed at a constant temperature. As the $CO_{2}$ density is increased, the amount of keto tautomer is increased, causing the K value to decrease. The modified lattice fluid hydrogen bonding theory has been applied to investigate the effect of density on the K.
