Effects of ultrasound in physical chemistry reactions (M2,D).


The use of ultrasound in chemistry - sonochemistry has grown spectacularly in recent years, resulting in a significant body of empirical research. This timely volume brings together the work and perspectives of theoreticians and acousticians, whose interest is centered on physical aspects, and of synthetic chemists, who need guidelines to successfully apply fundamental principles.
The text begins with a theoretical introduction that summarizes the key physical principles of sonochemistry, keeping mathematics to a minimum. Subsequent chapters describe the major characteristics of sonochemistry for solutions and for biphasic, catalytic, and electyrochemical systems with the aim of elucidating the state of the art and of identifying major points for future study.
