Hierarchical Bi2WO6 structures with high surface area were prepared in the presence of polyvinylpyrrolidone by using an optimized hydrothermal method. The samples prepared were characterized by X-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron microscopy and N2 adsorption-desorption technique. The results of these characterizations showed the formation of the hierarchical Bi2WO6 structures with high surface area (51m(2)/g). The degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) with or without visible light was investigated under various experimental conditions to evaluate the sonophotocatalytic activity of the hierarchical Bi2WO6 structures...

Two sonochemical processes were compared for the removal of ibuprofen in different water matrixes (distilled water and effluent from wastewater treatment plant). The effect of various operating parameters, such as pH (2.6-8.0), ultrasound power density (25-100W/L), sonication frequency (12-862kHz), addition of radical promoters (H2O2 and Fenton's reagent) or scavengers (n-butanol and acetic acid), was evaluated. Sono-degradation of ibuprofen followed a first-order kinetic trend, whose rate constant increased with ultrasound density and frequency...

Silicon nanoparticles (Si-NPs) are increasing in relevance in diverse fields of scientific and nanotechnological inquiry, where currently some of the most important areas of research involve energy storage and biomedical applications. The present article is concerned with a curious and scalable method for the preparation of discrete, unoxidized, hydrogenated, and amorphous Si-NPs of tunable size in the range of 1.5-50nm. Using ultrasound generated with a conventional ultrasonic horn, the "fusion" of Si-NPs is demonstrated at ambient temperature and pressure by sonicating solutions containing readily available, semiconductor-grade purity trisilane (Si3H8)...

Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) loaded poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) composites, with different CNT contents, were fabricated through an ultrasound assisted method as a fast and green way. Then, the obtained composites were fully characterized via FT-IR, UV-Vis, XRD, TGA, FE-SEM and TEM, etc. For this purpose, PET bottle was recycled and applied as matrix of nanocomposites (NC)s. Then, we dispersed the covalent functionalization of MWCNTs with a protein dispersant and obtained a powder of protein-functionalized CNTs...

Perfluorochemicals (PFCs), which are common in the aquatic environment, are toxic substances that have high chemical and heat resistance because of their strong C-F bonds. We investigated the effect of ultrasonication and short-wavelength UV irradiation on the degradation of perfluorooctane, perfluoropropionic acid, and perfluorooctanoic acid, which are examples of hydrophobic, hydrophilic, and intermediate PFCs, respectively. The results confirmed that ultrasonication was more effective for decomposing hydrophobic PFCs and UV irradiation was more effective for decomposing hydrophilic PFCs...

Sonoporation has been widely accepted as a significant tool for gene delivery as well as some bio-effects like hemolysis, bringing in high demands of looking into its underlying mechanism. A two-dimensional (2D) boundary element method (BEM) model was developed to investigate microbubble-cell interaction, especially the morphological and mechanical characteristics around the close-to-bubble point (CP) on cell membrane. Based on time evolution analysis of sonoporation, detailed information was extracted from the model for analysis, including volume expansion ratio of the bubble, areal expansion ratio of the cell, jet velocity and CP displacement...

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) were successfully synthesized by ultrasonic wave-assisted ball milling. In the absence of organic solvent, the coupling effect of ultrasonic wave and mechanical force played an significant role in the synthesis of MOFs. Adsorption of Congo red (CR) was studied in view of adsorption kinetic, isotherm and thermodynamics. The adsorbent was carried out using X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms, Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscope (SEM) methods...

Nanostructures of a new Co(II) coordination polymer (CP), [Co(Hbibp)(nbta)]n (1), (bibp=4,4'-bis(1-imidazolyl)biphenyl, H3nbta=5-nitro-1,2,3-benzenetricarboxylic acid) was synthesized by a sonochemical method. The nano-sized CP 1 was characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Structural analysis show that CP 1 exhibits a 1D chain structure with a 3-connected SP 1-periodic net (4,4)(0,2) topology, which can be further extended into a 2D supramolecular layer by the NH⋯O hydrogen bond interactions...

Herein we report the use of ultrasonic irradiation (US) in the synthesis of six new semi-synthetic selenium-containing chrysin derivatives by a simple and effective methodology utilizing CuI as catalyst, in good to excellent yields (60-89%). It was observed that US accelerates the reaction compared to conventional heating with excellent selectivity for diselenylated products. Compounds were tested for their antioxidant and anticancer activities in vitro and it was observed that the presence of selenium in the A-ring of chrysin enhanced both antioxidant and anticancer properties...

A joint chemical reactor system referred to as an ultrasonic-intensified micro-impinging jetting reactor (UIJR), which possesses the feature of fast micro-mixing, was proposed and has been employed for rapid preparation of FePO4 particles that are amalgamated by nanoscale primary crystals. As one of the important precursors for the fabrication of lithium iron phosphate cathode, the properties of FePO4 nano particles significantly affect the performance of the lithium iron phosphate cathode. Thus, the effects of joint use of impinging stream and ultrasonic irradiation on the formation of mesoporous structure of FePO4 nano precursor particles and the electrochemical properties of amalgamated LiFePO4/C have been investigated...

Pre-heated whey protein isolate (WPI) solution (10% w/v, 85°C for 30min) was prepared and subjected to high-intensity ultrasound (HUS, 20kHz) at different durations (5-40min) before acidification to determine the effects of HUS on glucono-δ-lactone (GDL)-induced gelation properties of whey protein gel. Results showed that HUS reduced the particle size and increased surface free sulfhydryl groups of pre-heated whey protein solution. Free sulfhydryl (-SH) content of the acid-induced WPI gels (GIWG) and protein solubility in presence of 8M urea were significantly reduced (P<0...

Cerium doped gadolinium gallium aluminum garnet (GGAG:Ce) ceramic precursors have been synthesized with an ultrasonic chemical co-precipitation method (UCC) and for comparison with a traditional chemical co-precipitation method (TCC). The effect of ultra-sonication on the morphology of powders and the transmittance of GGAG:Ce ceramics are studied. The results indicate that the UCC method can effectively improve the homogenization and sinterability of GGAG:Ce powders, which contribute to obtain high transparent GGAG ceramic with the highest transmittance of 81%...

The present study reports synthesis and characterization of poly(MMA-co-BA)/ZnO nanocomposites using ultrasound-assisted in-situ emulsion polymerization. Methyl methacrylate (MMA) was copolymerized with butyl acrylate (BA), for enhanced ductility of copolymer matrix, in presence of nanoscale ZnO particles. Ultrasound generated strong micro-turbulence in reaction mixture, which resulted in higher encapsulation and uniform dispersion of ZnO (in native form - without surface modification) in polymer matrix, as compared to mechanical stirring...

In this study, we investigated an alternative to the conventional hydrochloric acid leaching of roasted bastnaesite. The studies suggested that the rare earth oxyfluorides in non-oxidatively roasted bastnaesite can be selectively leached only at elevated temperatures Further, the Ce(IV) in oxidatively roasted bastnaesite does not leach readily at low temperatures, and it is difficult to induce it to form a complex with F(-) ions in order to increase the leaching efficiency. Moreover, it is inevitably reduced to Ce(III) at elevated temperatures...

The interactions at the interface between planar Ag3Sn and liquid Sn under ultrasonic irradiation were investigated. An intensive thermal grooving process occurred at Ag3Sn grain boundaries due to ultrasonic effects. Without ultrasonic application, planar shape of Ag3Sn layer gradually evolved into scalloped morphology after the solid-state Sn melting, due to a preferential dissolution of the intermetallic compounds from the regions at grain boundaries, which left behind the grooves embedding in the Ag3Sn layer...
