In this study, we have attempted to reveal the physical or mechanistic features of the sonochemical degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP). The principal physical phenomenon underlying sonochemical effects is radial motion of cavitation bubbles and production of radicals from transient collapse of these bubbles. We reveal some important physical facets of sonochemical degradation of 2,4-DCP by adopting dual approach of coupling experimental results with simulations of radial motion of… CONTINUE READING
