In pollution control applications, the presence of water in the electrical discharge enhances oxidation of pollutants. The results of an electrical discharge in gas when it flows through a heterogeneous mixture of water and dielectric pellets are reported. The discharge in the wet plasma reactor is more uniform compared to dry dielectric-barrier reactors. The electrical characteristics of such a discharge are discussed. Also the results of removal of SO[sub 2] with the wet reactor are reported. The wet reactor was found to be 5–10 times more energy efficient in removing SO[sub 2] compared to conventional dry plasma reactors. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    Surface inactivation is a phenomenon that causes poor adhesion. A wood surface exposed to contaminants such as dust or atmospheric grime can experience surface inactivation. Inactivation mechanisms can reduce the attractive forces on the wood surface and lead to a decrease in wettability. Plasma...
