In Situ Enhancement of Microplastic Raman Signals in Water Using Ultrasonic Capture

June 01, 2020

Special Issues

Of the 78 million tons of plastic packaging manufactured every year, approximately one-third ends up in the ocean, the air, and most foods and beverages. To monitor the proliferation of these plastics, an ultrasonic capture method is demonstrated that produces a 1500-fold enhancement of Raman signals of microplastics in water.
