Matching number of bubbles with radicals production

What is it about?

We aimed at "counting" the number of bubbles in different acoustic settings and correlating this number to the amount of radicals formed as a result of water molecule rupture as a result of cavitation

Why is it important?

For the first time (to our knowledge) it was reported for such a complex system how the radical production rate correlated to the cavitation conditions (frequency, amplitude or acoustic power).
