Abstract

This paper describes a laboratory-validated database of ion-neutral molecule reactions in humid air and humid air/toluene plasmas. Pulsed electron-bean high-pressure mass spectrometry was used to investigate the sequential cationic chemistry in gas streams at 4.2x10^2 Pa and 380 K. The temporal rise and fall in species' concentration was simulated using a kinetics model incorporating selected reactions taken from the database. The resulting ion profiles were found to be in almost quantitative agreement with the laboratory data.
