Synthesis of Nanosilver in Plasma-Liquid Microdischarge System
Keywords:microdischarge, secondary discharge, Ag nanoparticles, plasma-liquid system
AbstractThis paper presents the results of investigation of the plasma-liquid system with the secondary discharge supported by atmospheric pressure microdischarge in the vortex Ar flow. The plasma treated fluids were aqueous solutions of AgNO3. The microplasma discharge was powered by a DC supply. The plasma channel behaviour was characterized by photo/video recording, also plasma was studied using emission spectroscopy technique. The working liquid and firm products created after the treatment were studied also.
