The Power of Ultrasound in ElectrochemistryContact Prof. Bruno G. Pollet
The use of ultrasound in electrochemistry was first reported in the early 20th century and is nowadays a new exciting and promising subject area. Considerable work has been carried out by researchers from all over the world in which ultrasound has been applied to various electrochemical processes which led to several industrial applications and numerous publications in Engineering and Scientific journals. Like Sonochemistry (ultrasound with chemistry), the use of ultrasound in electrochemistry went through a period of neglect until the 1980’s when ultrasonic cleaning baths and ultrasonic probes became more available. Consequently, there has been an upsurge of interests in the use of Sonoelectrochemistry in a wide range of subject areas such as: water disinfection, electrochemical production of gases, electrodeposition, electroplating, the deposition of polymer films, the production of active metal nano/micro-particles, electrosynthesis, corrosion, electrochemical dissolution and electroanalysis.
