Application of chemical dosimetry to hydroxyl radical measurement during underwater discharge


The pulsed streamer discharge was generated in the liquid by using point-to-sphere electrode geometry. In this study, the OH radicals were measured indirectly by a chemical dosimetry. Terephthalic acid (TA) was used as an OH radical scavenger and fluorescence of the resulted 2-hydroxyterephthalic acid (HTA) was measured. Instead of the use of conventional… (More)
