The Influence of Admixtures on the Composition of Products by Nitrogen-Methane Atmospheric Glow Discharge
Keywords:Titan’s atmosphere, atmospheric glow discharge, FTIR spectroscopy
This work extends our experimentally studies with simulation of Titan’s atmosphere by atmospheric glow discharge. This work is devoted to estimate the influence of CO2 and/or CO on reactivity in the Titan’s atmosphere. The exploration of planetary atmosphere is being advanced by the exciting results of the Cassin-Huygens mission to Saturn and Titan, its most famous moon. Most of the studies were mainly interested in the reactivity of the N2-CH4 gaseous mixture and with the primary products of reactions, but the atmosphere of Titan also contains oxygenated volatile species.
