Sonochemistry What is sonochemistry
Found this topic whilst looking through all tags. What is it? Is it a branch of chemistry that studies interaction between sound and matter if to assume by the title?
This is a branch of chemistry that studies the interaction of powerful acoustic waves and the resulting chemical and physico-chemical effects. Sonochemistry investigates the kinetics and mechanism of sonochemical reactions occurring in the volume of a sound field. The field of sound chemistry also includes some physical and chemical processes in a sound field: sonoluminescence, dispersion of a substance under the action of sound, emulsification and other colloidal chemical processes. Sonochemistry pays the main attention to the study of chemical reactions that occur under the action of acoustic vibrations - sonochemical reactions.
@argentum Whoa, that sounds so dope!!! Can you conduct sonochemical reactions in ultrasound baths?
@amalgama I practically did not study, but given the fact that the influence of ultrasound is directly present there, I think yes
@benzol00 From my practice I will say that I received silver nanoparticles in the presence of ultrasonic waves and ultraviolet rays, but there is more of their physical effect, in my opinion, than chemical
I wonder if it will be possible to disperse the catalyst granules in an ultrasonic bath without applying mechanical action?
@damiryagudin In theory, it is possible, it depends on the power of ultrasound and the hardness of the material
I agree, theoretically it is possible. We will try.
@argentum I understand correctly that you also dispersed silver particles with ultrasound and obtained nanoparticles.
@damiryagudin I did not crush the finished ones, but simply used them in situ in the synthesis process
@argentum What did you get silver nanoparticles from? By any chance, not by reducing silver ions in an aqueous solution? Or in another way?
