Operando acoustic analysis: a valuable method for investigating reaction mechanisms in mechanochemistry


We present a new operando approach for following reactions taking place in mechanochemistry, relying on the analysis of the evolution of the sound during milling. We show that differences in sound can be directly correlated to (physico)chemical changes in the reactor, making this technique attractive and complementary to others for monitoring mechanochemical reactions.
