Conversion of Gaseous Hydrocarbons in Cold Electron-Beam Plasma
A new method for plasma-assisted reforming of hydrocarbon gases is briefly described, and the results of oxidative (without the synthesis gas stage) and nonoxidative conversion to new gaseous and liquid products are exemplified. The method is based on the unique property of cold plasma, the dramatic acceleration of chemical processes due to the plasma activation of particles, which makes it possible to enhance reactions in small flow reactors without the use of catalysts.
