Nitrous oxide (N<sub>2</sub>O) is commonly used as an anesthetic gas in hospitals. It is a greenhouse gas and should therefore be removed to limit pollution. As nonthermal plasma has low electron density, it has been considered effective for the treatment of low concentrations of gas. Moreover, N<sub>2</sub>O is extremely stable in the troposphere, and is therefore difficult to decompose. In this study, a system to remove high concentrations of N<sub>2 </sub>O using nonthermal plasma along with… CONTINUE READING
