Fundamental aspects and applications of power ultrasound in the preparation of dispersed systems are reviewed. As in cleaning, degassing, crystallization and precipitation, its mechanical effects originate from cavitation. Thus, power ultrasound (of low frequency) provides energy under a form particularly suitable for product formulation, more often under the form of dispersions. Therefore, insonation shows very efficient in emulsion (L/L), suspension (S/L), nanoparticle and aerosol (L/G or S/G) formation as well as in foam control.
