Abstract

The dissociation of Carbon dioxide in a d.c. point-plane corona discharge reactor is examined at atmospheric pressure to check the efficiency of the device for pollution abatement purposes. The influence of the main parameters of the discharge on the reaction yield is considered.

Keywords: Corona discharge; Carbon dioxide; Atmospheric pressure; Chemical properties; Pollution abatement.
