Abstract

The multielectrode slipping surface discharge in a two-phase water-gas (methane) medium is studied experimentally as a plasma-chemical converter of methane into various hydrocarbons, carbon, and hydrogen. The energy value of methane decomposition is on the order of 5 eV/molecule, which is close to record-high values attained in high-pressure discharges. The degree of conversion of methane is determined and the possibility of its substantial increase is considered.
