The Power of Ultrasound in ElectrochemistryContact Prof. Bruno G. Pollet
The use of ultrasound in electrochemistry was first reported in the early 20th century and is nowadays a new subject area. Considerable work was carried out in which ultrasound was applied to various electrochemical processes which led to some industrial applications and many publications in chemical and electrochemical journals. Like Sonochemistry (ultrasound with chemistry), the use of ultrasound in electrochemistry went through a period of neglect until the 1980’s when ultrasonic cleaning baths and ultrasonic probes became more available. Consequently, there has been an upsurge of interests in the use of Sonoelectrochemistry in a wide range of subject areas such as electrochemical production of gases, electrodeposition, electroplating, the deposition of polymer films, the production of active metal nano/micro-particles, electrosynthesis, corrosion, electrochemical dissolution and electroanalysis.
