Abstract: In this study, plasma discharge in a liquid at intensive ultrasonic field above the cavitation threshold has been proven to be of great interest for initiation of various physical and chemical processes. In such discharge, nanoparticles of tungsten and zinc oxides have been synthesised. Further exploration of synthesised nanoparticles has demonstrated that the factor of ultrasonic cavitation during the synthesis substantially affects physical and chemical characteristics of nanoparticles.

Keywords: nanoparticles; ultrasound; plasma; cavitation; metal oxide.
