Implementation of a combined SAXS/WAXS/QEXAFS set-up for time-resolved in situexperiments.
It has previously been shown that there are many benefits to be obtained in combining several techniques in one in situ set-up to study chemical processes in action. Many of these combined set-upsExpand

The sonochemical preparation of tungsten oxide nanoparticles
Amorphous tungsten oxide has been prepared by ultrasound irradiation of a solution of tungsten hexacarbonyl W(CO)6 in diphenylmethane (DPhM) in the presence of an Ar (80%)–O2 (20%) gaseous mixtureExpand

Influence of gamma irradiation on hydrophobic room-temperature ionic liquids [BuMeIm]PF6 and [BuMeIm](CF3SO2)2N.
Stability of neat hydrophobic Room-Temperature Ionic Liquids (RTIL) [BuMeIm]X, where [BuMeIm]+ is 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium and X- is PF6-, and (CF3SO2)2N-, was studied under gamma radiolysisExpand

Effect of operational conditions on sonoluminescence and kinetics of H2O2 formation during the sonolysis of water in the presence of Ar/O2 gas mixture.
Ultrasonic frequency is a key parameter determining multibubble sonoluminescence (MBSL) spectra of water saturated with Ar/O2 gas mixtures. At 20 kHz, the MBSL is quenched by oxygen. By contrast, atExpand

Formation of higher chloride complexes of Np(IV) and Pu(IV) in water-stable room-temperature ionic liquid [BuMeIm][Tf2N].
A UV/vis/near-IR spectroscopic study shows that in [BuMeIm][(CF3SO2)2N] hydrophobic room-temperature ionic liquid solutions, [BuMeIm]2[AnCl6] complexes, where BuMeIm+ is 1-n-butyl-3-methylimidazoliumExpand

Spectroscopy of Sonoluminescence and Sonochemistry in Water Saturated with N2-Ar Mixtures.
Sonoluminescence spectra in relation with sonochemical activity of water sparged with Ar/N2 gas mixtures were systematically studied at two ultrasonic frequencies (20 and 359 kHz). At 20 kHz, solelyExpand

Potential applications of sonochemistry in spent nuclear fuel reprocessing: a short review.
The industrial treatment of spent nuclear fuel is based upon a hydrometallurgical process in nitric acid medium. In order to minimize the volume of radioactive waste it seems interesting to generateExpand
