The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been examining the potential of combining sonication with existing measurement technologies for monitoring specific classes of organic pollutants in water. The research specifically addressed using ultrasound (ultrasonic) processors to decompose aqueous organochlorine compounds into ions as a screening method for organochlorine pollutants in water. Anions specific to the inorganic components would be produced in sonication. Changes in ion concentrations before and after sonication would be used in monitoring for the pollutants. The success with compounds served as proof-of-principle and forms a rationale for expanding the research to other pollutant classes.
