Sonochemical reactors are used in water treatment, the synthesis of fine chemicals, pharmaceutics and others. The low e ciency of sonoreactors have prevented its massive usage at industrial scales. Controlling the appearance of bubbles in place and time is the most limiting factor. A novel type of sonochemical reactor was designed making use of micro-fabrication techniques to control the nucleation sites of micro-bubbles. The e ciency was increased first by locating the nucleation sites in the… CONTINUE READING
