Abstract:Water pollution is rapidly becoming a major problem. Through studies of the effect of ultrasound on catalysts it has been found that certain water pollutants can be oxidized or modified. This synergetic effect between ultrasound and certain heterogeneous catalysts, sonocatalysis, is demonstrated qualitatively for a number of organic compounds (anilines, stilbestrol, orthochloronitrobenzene and phenol) and quantitatively for the oxidation of iodide ion. The technique shows promise as a tertiary treatment of municipal waste water.
