Surfactant Effects In Sonoprocessing

Grant number: DP0771094

Abstract

This project will provide the fundamental science required to further develop a range of ultrasonic applications within the Australian food industry, for wastewater treatment and in medical science. In particular, it will assist more applied research currently sponsored by both the Victorian government STI initiative and the CSIRO Food Futures Flagship, which considers the use of ultrasound to assist in bioactives separation, food emulsification and membrane operations. The development of ultrasound contrast agents (surfactant coated microbubbles) also has the potential to increase both the length and quality of life for many Australians. The work addresses both National Research priorities ..
