Effect of Ultrasound ¿Preinsonification¿ of Solutions on the Structuring of Dried Microdrop Trails

Autores UPV


The effect of ultrasound preinsonification of a solution on the kinetics and end result of the drying (evaporation) of a microdrop of this solution on a substrate was examined. The results of experiments with salt solution (NaCl) of albumin drops and of an alkaline (NaOH) solution drops are presented. It is shown that the morphology of the dried microdrop residual trail of a preinsonified solution differs noticeably compared to the microdrop trail of a solution that has not been insonified. The main reasons for the revealed effects are analyzed. © 2011 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
