Abstract
In this study, the formation of ozone and the abatement of trichloroethylene (TCE) with non thermal plasma was experimentally and theoretically investigated. The model predicts that the ozone formation increases with the energy deposition and decreases with the relative humidity (RH) of the air, which is qualitatively in agreement with experimental data. For an energy deposition of 0.136 J/cm³, the abatement of 1000 ppm TCE in air with 5 % RH is dominated by atomic oxygen and to a lesser extent by OH radicals. In the afterglow of the discharge, the destruction is dominated by the ClO radicals. An increase in RH reduces the reaction rates of TCE with atomic oxyge...
