MCKAY, K. ... et al, 2012. Chemical pathways governing the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) in atmospheric pressure He+O2+H2O plasmas. Presented at: The 4th International Conference on Plasma Medicine (ICPM4), 17th-21st June 2012, Orleans, France.
It is well-known that atmospheric-pressure plasmas can be engineered to produce reactive
oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) known to play important roles in
biological systems. Here we concentrate on the generation of ROS, and in particular on the
chemical pathways that govern the generation and loss of ROS in atmospheric pressure rf
(13.56MHZ) plasmas sustained in helium with admixtures of O2 and H2O.
