Summary The effect of ultrasound on chemical and biological systems has been under investigation for over 60 years and yet its use as a tool for the synthetic chemist scarcely predates 1980. The purpose of this monograph is to provide a critical introduction for those intrigued by the synthetic potential of ultrasound, and this is reflected in the examples discussed. In addition, a brief overview of the physics of acoustic cavitations is included in order to explain the origin of sonochemical reactivity and the means by which ultrasound can be exploited to its full potential.
