Experimental studies of the electrical parameters of the microdischarge and the plasma of the microdischarge in the vortex flow of CO2 as the plasma-forming gas was carried out. The kinetics of the formation of some components of microwave plasma was considered using ZDPlasKin computer code and Bolsig+ at experimentally measured electric field strengths, pressure and gas temperature. The key reactions of microdischarge were determined. The Bolsig+ code was used to determine the mean energy of electrons.
