About the book

The goal of the book is to give the reader an overview of a field related to industrial applications in chemical engineering, green technology and nanotechnology. This book aims to provide information about the sonochemical engineering processes, applications of sonochemical reactions in environmental technologies applications of ultrasound to organic or inorganic synthesis and in biotechnology. The book welcomes all submissions in the field of experimental methods and critical reviews from multidisciplines such as chemistry, medicine and materials science.

Among others, topics that are welcome are:
*the fundamentals and experimental methods of acoustic cavitation
*industrial applications,
*ultrasound-assisted reactions,
*organic / inorganic synthesis,
*nanomaterials (encapsulated nanoparticles, metal oxide nanoparticles, nanopowders, nanocollides, nanotubes, nanorods, nanowires, nanofilms, nanoplatelets, nanosheets, nanoribbons, nanobelts, nanoplates, nanodots, nanoalloys, nanodiscs, nanorings, nanotripods nanobricks, nanonails, nanoarrows, nanospheres),
*wastewater treatment,
*pharmaceutical applications.
