Ultrasonic irradiation and the associated sonochemical and
sonophysical effects are complementary techniques for driving more
efficient chemical reactions and yields. Sonochemistry?the chemical
effects and applications of ultrasonic waves?and sustainable
(green) chemistry both aim to use less hazardous chemicals and
solvents, reduce energy consumption, and increase product
A comprehensive collection of knowledge, Handbook on
Applications of Ultrasound covers the most relevant aspects linked
to and linking green chemistry practices to environmental
sustainability through the uses and applications of
ultrasound-mediated and ultrasound-assisted biological,
biochemical, chemical, and physical processes.
Chapters are presented in the areas of:
- Medical applications
- Drug and gene delivery
- Food technology
- Synthetic applications and organic chemistry
- Anaerobic digestion
- Environmental contaminants degradation
- Polymer chemistry
- Industrial syntheses and processes
- Reactor design
- Electrochemical systems
- Combined ultrasound?microwave technologies
While the concepts of sonochemistry have been known for more
than 80 years, in-depth understanding of this phenomenon continues
to evolve. Through a review of the current status of chemical and
physical science and engineering in developing more
environmentally-friendly and less toxic synthetic processes, this
book highlights many existing applications and enormous potential
of ultrasound technology to upgrade present industrial,
agricultural, and environmental processes.
