Article in ChemistrySelect about BuBble bags and radicals

ChemistrySelect published our article with measurement results with our BuBble bags. We investigated the production of so-called radicals; these are chemical side-products of cavitation bubbles. We showed that the bags increased the radical production with 45% while reducing the variability with 22%, compared to a 25x smaller device that we had engineered earlier in the ...
