Atmospheric-pressure N2, He, air, and O2 microplasma arrays have been used to inactivate Escherichia coli cells suspended in aqueous solution. Measurements show that the efficiency of inactivation of E. coli cells is strongly dependent on the feed gases used, the plasma treatment time, and the discharge power. Compared to atmospheric-pressure N2 and He(More)
Atmospheric-pressure N2, He, air, and O2 microplasma arrays have been used to investigate the effects of plasma treatment on seed germination and seedling growth of mung bean in aqueous solution. Seed germination and growth of mung bean were found to strongly depend on the feed gases used to generate plasma and plasma treatment time. Compared to the(More)
In this study, liquid-phase microplasma technology (LPMPT) was employed to facilitate the liquefaction of bamboo shoot shell (BSS) in polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG 400) and ethylene glycol (EG) mixture. Effects of liquefaction conditions such as liquefaction time, catalyst percentage, solvent/BSS mass ratio, PEG/EG volume ratio on liquefaction were(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is usually considered to be an important reagent in green chemistry since water is the only by-product in H2O2 involved oxidation reactions. Early studies show that direct synthesis of H2O2 by plasma-water interactions is possible, while the factors affecting the H2O2 production in this method remain unclear. Herein, we present a(More)
In this work, plasma electrolytic technology was successfully employed to achieve fast liquefaction of sawdust when polyethylene glycol 200 (PEG 200) and glycerol were used as liquefacient in the presence of the catalyst sulfuric acid. Results showed that H ions could heat the solution effectively during the plasma electrolytic liquefaction (PEL) process.(More)
Inspired by the formation process of natural thundershowers, we fabricated an organic nanocone matrix-like bamboo-shoot by using atmospheric plasma polymerization in the absence of any catalyst or template. The discharging characteristics affected the nanocone shape and distribution in an obvious way. The nanocones prepared by helium (He) plasma were about(More)
Atmospheric-pressure plasma and TiO2 photocatalysis have been widely investigated separately for the management and reduction of microorganisms in aqueous solutions. In this paper, the two methods were combined in order to achieve a more profound understanding of their interactions in disinfection of water contaminated by Escherichia coli. Under water(More)
