Aqueous Inorganic Sonochemistry



This chapter discusses the effect of ultrasound propagation in water and aqueous solutions, in the atmosphere of inert and reactive gases. Sonochemical studies of aqueous solutions of divalent and trivalent metal ions and their salts have been reviewed and the precipitation behaviour of hydroxides of metal ions has been discussed. Synthesis of nanoparticles of many metals using ultrasound and in aqueous solutions has also been discussed briefly. Besides, the nephelometric and conductometric studies of sonicated solutions of these metal ions have been reported.
