Abstract:

An ultrasonic nebulizer based on flowing a sample solution across the vibrating face of a piezoelectric crystal produces an aerosol useful for instrumental analytical techniques. The piezoelectric element is coated with a ceramic glaze resistant to many analytical solutions. Different and better coatings will be needed, however, for especially corrosive solutions. Ultrasonic nebulizers inherently more resistant were designed but had limited operational life and were not perfected during this study.
