Edited by

  • T.J. Mason, School of Chemistry, Coventry University, Coventry, UK

This is the fifth volume of Advances in Sonochemistry the first having been published in 1990. The definition of sonochemistry has developed to include not only the ways in which ultrsound has been harnessed to effect chemistry but also its uses in material processing. Subjects included range from chemical dosimetry to ultrasound in microbiology to ultrasound in the extraction of plant materials and in leather technology.
