Unknown sonochemistry

The chemical effects of ultrasound, named sonochemistry, are known since 1927.  Today, there is a consensus within the scientific community that sonochemistry arises from the violent collapse of microbubbles formed in liquids submitted to power ultrasonic waves.

High-accuracy and high-sensitivity optical tracing of dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5) involved in a nocturnal tropospheric chemical reaction process in smog chamber using quantum cascade laser

Dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5) is an important reactive intermediate in the atmospheric chemistry of nitrogen oxides and nitrate aerosol, especially during night-time. It is also an important reservoir of NO3 radical that can react with various volatile organic
