In the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with nonthermal plasma (NTP), the additive effect of water on VOC decomposition is an important issue to be solved since water is contained in VOC exhausts. Although there have been disputed discussions on the additive effect of water on the decomposition of VOCs in NTP, a unified mechanism has not been established yet. Therefore, the additive effect of water on the NTP decomposition of dichloromethane, toluene, and methanol was studied in the… CONTINUE READING
