Before calcination, the optimal catalyst sample was placed on a Pyrex plate (d=10 cm) under a glow discharge plasma system for plasma treatment.
The team allowed each gas mixture to flow into the PHAZER setup and then exposed the mixture to one of the two types of energy -- plasma from an alternating current glow discharge or light from an ultraviolet lamp.
The narrative review aims to outline the research done on refinement of wettability and reduced hydrophobicity of the VPS impression material, the effect of addition of surfactants, the outcome of surface tension and the use of radio frequency glow discharge (plasma treatment) and the result of disinfectant on the hydrophilicity and wettability of the material.
However, while converting Titan's atmosphere without employing oxygen using direct electrical energy can be accomplished via glow discharge to generate hydrazine [105] and electrical catalyst heating to create ammonia [126] or higher hydrocarbons from methane [1271, this requires the selection of a proper catalyst along with a heterogeneous chemical kinetics study.
Thin films produced through glow discharge are known to have free radicals or polar groups independent of the nature of monomers.
In this case, two situations are possible: maintaining a discharge in the form of a glow discharge or stopping the discharge.
