Pros and Applications of Nanobubbles – Review

S. Sreeremya


Nanobubbles, generations forms, basic studies and applications constitute a vast research area, included their usage in advanced mineral flotation. There are investigation needs for sustainable generation procedures, stability and understanding the nanobubbles interfacial properties and structures. Results proved that a decrease in pressure makes the super-saturated liquid suffers cavitation and nanobubbles were generated.

Keywords: liquid, nanobubbles, pressure, super saturated
