High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy (HR-US) is an analytical technique for direct and non-destructive study of intrinsic properties of liquids and semi-solid materials based on precision measurements of ultrasonic velocity and attenuation. The application areas of HR-US in research, product development, quality and process control include analysis of conformational transitions of polymers, ligand binding, self-assembly and aggregation, crystallization, gelation, analysis of phase transitions and phase diagrams, monitoring of chemical and biochemical reactions. The HR-US measurements can be performed in small sample volumes (down to droplet size), broad temperature range, at ambient and elevated pressures, in various measuring regimes such as automatic temperature ramps, titrations and measurements in flow.
