Ultrafine Bubbles

edited by Koichi Terasaka, Kyuichi Yasui, Wataru Kanematsu and Nobuhiro Aya

This is the first outstanding book focusing on the comprehensive features of ultrafine bubbles (UFBs). It covers their versatile aspects such as history, fundamentals, and latest applications, and in particular, their existence, stability, and radical formations. It is strongly recommended not only for researchers but also beginners interested in UFBs and wishing to gain new knowledge on the emerging UFB science and technology.

Ultrafine Bubbles are gas-filled bubbles having a diameter smaller than 1 μm. They are sometimes called bulk nanobubbles because these are not on a solid surface but inside a bulk liquid (water). They are already being used in commercial processes such as cleaning and plant cultivation. However, many mysteries still exist with respect to UFBs, such as mechanisms of stability, OH radical formation, and biological and medical effects. This is the first book on UFBs that reviews researches done on them. It is helpful for students and researchers interested in the fundamentals of this emerging field and its applications, including cleaning, biological, medical, and dental ones.
