Decomposition of tetrachloromethane and nitrous oxide under low-temperature plasma condition
Two methods for decomposition of stable gaseous compounds were studied:1) by means of silent electric discharge stabilized with a dielectric barrier and 2) by gliding electrical discharge (Glid-Arc). Both the silent and the gliding discharges may be used under atmospheric pressure. The advantage of these methods is their low energy consumption and high yield of free radicals. They can be used for decomposition of stable toxical gases or liquids like chlorinated organic compounds, NOX etc. The effect of the both kinds of discharge on transformation of tetrachloromethane and of nitrous oxide was examined.
