ABSTRACT. The present nano science domain focussed on sample preparation and inhibition of chemical reaction achieved by several techniques based on the principle of cavitation process using ultrasonic frequency-sonochemical routes. The effect of sonochemical routes is highly advantageous in reaction methods such as triggering reaction pathways, inducing the speedy reaction of inter-particle collision. In polymers, high intensity ultrasound waves are used for the polymerization of monomers by step growth process. This review is an outlook of sonochemical approach for polymer nanocomposites, which follows the physics of ultrasonic frequency bands, chemical reactions and the properties of acoustic cavitation highly applicable for the development of modern target materials.

Keywords: ultrasonic dispersion, polymers, nanocomposites, high and low power, cavitation
