Microbubbles and nanobubbles have been linked to everything from curing cancer
to producing tastier fish!
This talk aims to sort the fact from fiction whilst also discussing some of the less
well known applications in industries such as cleaning and agriculture. The talk will
also look at some of the issues surrounding these bubbles including the fact that
some of them might not exist!
