The recent direct detection of gravitational waves has triggered the interest in gravitational wave sources. Some sources are potentially observable only with space based interferometers, such as the forthcoming LISA scheduled for launch after 2030. Cataclysmic variables are binary sources whose emission is in the sensititivity band of LISA. The paper presents an estimation of the gravitational wave emission of about five hundreds cataclysmic variables. The most promising sources are AM CVn systems.
