In 1933, Flosdorf and Chambers (1) reported that metal sulfides were oxidized in the presence of audible sound (1-15 kHz) while investigating the bactericidal action of audible sound. However, Schmitt et al. (2) were the first researchers to observe the rapid oxidation of dissolved H_2S gas to colloidal sulfur during sonication at 750 kHz with a 250-W power source. They reported that an increase in the total pressure of the system (PO_2) led to higher oxidation rates up to a limiting pressure.
