High temperatures promote the suppression of the sonochemistry effect, impairing the ultrasound streaming as a consequence of the great amount of bubbles.
On the other hand, the use of MW techniques or sonochemistry for organic synthesis seems to be a good replacement as shown by the growing number of research papers on the applications of MW organic synthesis with high yields, without solvents, low waste and very low energy requirements being published in recent years [145].

Koberg and Gendanken (2012) reported the transesterification of castor oil with methanol and SrO as a catalyst under a two-stage (extraction and transesterification) and a one-stage method (in situ transesterification) using three techniques: conventional heating, sonochemistry and microwave irradiation.
