Results for all the SRB 8 samples used in this study are shown in figure 4, and were found indistinguishable for 10 minutes and 15 minutes of sonication time within the random error of repeated measurements for all the SRB 8 standards.
They suggested that the appropriate therapeutic acoustic power, based on initial test sonication, must be selected for different areas inside the fibroid with significantly different states of perfusion.
In this work, we fabricated the miscible PC/PMMA blends by using the ultrasonic-assisted transesterification process and systematically investigated the effects of sonication time and ultrasonic power on the transesterification process.
The spiked samples were left in repose for 24 hours and then extracted by sonication with HCl 0.1 M.
During the sonication, 10 [micro]L of oleic acid and oleylamine were added and the sonication was carried out for 30 min.
The MWCNTs are uniformly dispersed in the composite due to the sonication. This helps in reducing the stress concentration point by avoiding agglomeration of MWCNTs in the composite.
The effect of CNT on polymer nanocomposite properties prepared by the sonication method has been reported in our previous work [20].
Mechanical effects are induced by sonication at lower frequencies of 20 kHz, as a result of increased pressure gradients formed during the collapse of cavitation bubbles within or near the bacteria, which result in enhanced shear forces, microstreaming, and high levels of mixing resulting in disruption of the bacteria.
Sonication refers to the administration of energy to the target using focused ultrasound beams.
The graphene suspension (3 mg x m[L.sup.-1]) was prepared by weighing an appropriate amount of solid graphene and dispersing it in a suitable amount of deionized water using sonication for 6 h.
This grant will fund development of a novel syringe sonication device that may allow quick preparation of an investigational drug for oxygen delivery.
Sonication of retrieved shoulder arthroplasty was performed in only one infected shoulder implant, yielding P.
