Summary

The formation of C2H2 and C2H4 in the plasma of an electric arc burning in a graphite tube in the presence of an inhomogeneous magnetic field in a mixture of argon and ethanol has been investigated. The plasma of the arc source is characterised by a relatively high carbon content. Its influence on the products of chemical reactions in the plasma occurring between C and H is noticeable. Experimental results are compared with the equilibrium composition of the system C-H-O.

Massenspektrometrische Analyse der Reaktionen zwischen C und H im horizontalen Bogenplasma

Zusammenfassung

Die Bildung von C2H2 und C2H4 im Plasma einer horizontalen Bogenentladung in einem Graphitrohr im inhomogenen Magnetfeld (Gemisch Argon-Ethanol) wurde untersucht. Charakteristisch für dieses Plasma ist der große Kohlenstoffgehalt. Die experimentellen Ergebnisse wurden mit der theoretischen Zusammensetzung des C-H-O-Systems verglichen.
