Abstract

Reliable kinetics data are necessary input for models describing the decomposition of gases in electric discharge or electron-beam devices. In this second part of a continuing series, we provide a core database describing the dominant reactions of neutral species in nonthermal low temperature (300 700K) pulsed plasmas containing humid air. Recommended rate constants and extrapolation methods are provided in a manner to facilitate prediction of reactivities as a function of temperature and pressure.
