Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Special Issue on Ultrasonics Sonochemistry

“Selected papers presented at Ultrasonics 2018 will be published in a Special Issue of Ultrasonics Sonochemistry. Manuscripts will be subjected to the normal reviewing process as per journal guidelines and hence all the selected papers may not be accepted for the Special Issue”.

For further information please contact Ms. Ana Laço: ana.laco@bioscopegroup.org.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you to Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal), for the 3rd International conference on ultrasonic-based applications: from analysis to synthesis (ULTRASONICS-2018).

We cordially encourage you to attend and contribute to one of the major events in 2018 on the Ultrasonics field.

We are confident that you will appreciate the breadth and quality of the scientific program and the city of Caparica, and look forward to seeing you in 2018 in Portugal.

Symposium Subjects:

  • Ultrasound in Analytical Chemistry and Food Chemistry
  • Ultrasound in Organic and Inorganic Synthesis
  • Ultrasound in Synthesis of New Materials : Studies and Applications
