is the field of use of ultrasound in process engineering, the best known example is the most widely used and ultrasonic cleaning operating at frequencies below 50 kHz, however, it is not uncommon practice sonochemistry at frequencies up to and mega hertz these high frequencies seem more favorable to the production of free radicals, and will preferred methods for example by degradation of chemical pollutants [46].
