Abstract

The gas phase production of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in a RF atmospheric pressure glow discharge with helium and water vapour has been investigated as a function of the gas flow. It is shown that the production of H2O2 is through the recombination of two OH radicals in a three body collision and the main destruction is through radical reactions involving OH or surface losses at the electrodes. Balancing these production and losses of H2O2 allows estimating OH densities which correspond with reported densities in literature for this type of discharge. 1. Introduction
