Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The study of chemical reactions in liquids subjected to high-intensity sound or ultrasound. This causes the formation, growth, and collapse of tiny bubbles within the liquid, generating localized centres of very high temperature and pressure, with extremely rapid cooling rates. Such conditions are suitable for studying novel reactions, decomposing polymers, and producing amorphous materials.

Subjects: Chemistry.
