About this book
The influence of sonochemistry in almost every sphere of science and technology has been phenomenal. However, whilst several books have covered physical and organic sonochemistry, no single book has ever featured inorganic systems. Theoretical and Experimental Sonochemistry Involving Inorganic Systems fills this gap by presenting a comprehensive and timely international multi-author overview of sonochemical processes which involve inorganic systems.
Theoretical and Experimental Sonochemistry Involving Inorganic Systems presents a theoretical introduction in the first three chapters, provides recent applications in material science in the next four chapters, describes the effects of ultrasound in aqueous solutions in the following five chapters and finally discusses the most exciting phenomenon of sonoluminescence in aqueous solutions containing inorganic materials in the subsequent two chapters, before ending with basic introductory experiments of sonochemistry and sonoluminescence in the concluding chapter.
Theoretical and Experimental Sonochemistry Involving Inorganic Systems is aimed at advanced researchers and fresh students.

From the reviews:
"Theoretical and Experimental Sonochemistry Involving Inorganic Systems, edited by Prof. Pankaj, Agra, India and Prof. M. Ashokkumar, Melbourne, Australia and published by Springer, Dordrecht, Heidelberg, London, New York, consists of 15 chapters, which have been authored by renowned and active workers of five countries.
Theoretical and Experimental Sonochemistry Involving Inorganic Systems is a comprehensive and exhaustive description of sonochemical studies of aqueous systems starting from its origin to the present day studies including the synthesis of nano materials, degradation of pollutants, standardization of analytical techniques, behaviour of mono and multivalent metallic cations, green waste water management and the details of sonoluminescence in a single volume. The effects of ultrasound in combination with other techniques such as microwave, photocatalysis and catalysis are indeed attention-grabbing.
Interestingly, few chapters in the latter half of the book, including the last chapter, are aimed at
introducing this relatively new but a very compatible source of energy, at the University level teaching and research which is yet to be exploited and harnessed in almost all fields of chemistry.
[...] I do hope and wish that this book would attract the attention of students and researchers alike and benefit the world of chemistry and chemical technology in more than one way” (Dr. G.C. Saxena, Indian Council of Chemists, Agra, India, 2010).
