Abstract

In the last decade, the sonoelectrochemical synthesis of inorganic materials has experienced an important development motivated by the emerging interest in the nanostructures production. However, other traditional sonoelectrochemical synthesis such as gas production, metal deposits and metallic oxide films have also been improved with the simultaneous application of both electric and ultrasound fields. In this chapter, a summary of the fundamental basis, experimental set-up and different applications found in literature are reported, giving the reader a general approach to this branch of Applied Sonoelectrochemistry.
