As Guest Editor, I am proud to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue entitled « Sonochemistry and Green Chemistry Applications » in the open access journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, IF = 2.416 in 2014).
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of papers based on original researches that describe sonochemical applications with a green chemistry approach. A particular attention to demonstrate this aspect in the submitted manuscript will be asked, related to specific points or to the overall process. The submission taking account the 12 principles of green engineering, with notion of scale-up, energy consumption and design of equipment will also be appreciated. New combinations of power ultrasound with ionic liquids, microwave irradiation, enzyme, electrochemistry, or other technologies will be also considered.
This Special Issue aims at showing that ultrasound is not just a simple mixing tool, but has a real role to play in the development of sustainable, green, and eco-efficient processes, to go ahead in innovations and the wildest results.
Keywords: sonochemistry; power ultrasound; ultrasonic application; green chemistry; eco-efficiency; clean processes; synthesis; catalysis; material preparation; polymers; biomass conversion; extraction; mechanisms.
Please, submit your innovative research in the area in our Special Issue before November 15th, 2016.
