The electron transport coefficients in TRIES-Kr, TRIES-He, TRIES-Xe and TRIES-Ne mixtures were firstly calculated by using two-term approximation of the Boltzmann equation for the E/N (ratio of the electric field E to the neutral number density N) range of 0.1–1000 Td (Townsend). The influences of adding different amounts of inert gases on the electron transport coefficient of TRIES-inert gases mixtures are investigated for industrial purposes, specifically in plasma polymerization and plasma enhancing chemical vapour deposition.
