This monograph treats the new and emerging subject of cavitation reaction engineering, specifically, designing the reactor which involves cavitation driven reaction process produced by the hydrodynamic, acoustic or laser forces. The monograph also illustrates the basic treatment of both physics and chemistry associated with the formation, growth and implosion of cavities and the resulting chemical reactions. While a substantial portion of the book reviews the existing literature on cavitation reaction engineering, it also presents some of the authors' views on how to treat the subject from the first principles and what future work is needed to expand knowledge in this area. While cavitation reaction engineering is immediately applicable to water treatment processes, in the near future this process will be important for many applications in chemical, biochemical, petroleum, pharmaceutical and material industries. Apart from introducing the new and emerging subject of reaction engineering, the book illustrates how an introduction of cavitation process can have added value to many existing chemical, biological and catalytic reaction processes. The book should be useful to any student, researcher or industrial designer who is interested in designing and scaling-up cavitation reactor.
