Inside Cover: Ultrasound and Microstructures—A Promising Combination? (ChemSusChem 2/2012)
The combination of ultrasound and microstructures can increase interfacial areas between immiscible phases and thus enhance multiphase reactions. On page 279, Hübner and Jähnisch et al. report on the design, testing and evaluation of a modular setup for a continuous ultrasound supported liquid/liquid two-phase process in microstructured devices. Ultrasonication is effected indirectly via pressurized water as transmission medium for an improved energy input.
