Chemical Effects of Acoustic Cavitation


A novel high-frequency, high-power, pilot-plant scale sonochemical reactor was developed and used to study the degradation of dichloromethane, trichloroethylene, phenol, and methyl orange in aqueous solutions. The degradation rates of trichloroethylene, dichloromethane, and phenol were found to exceed those of similar frequency, small-scale bench reactors… (More)
