It is well known that, by electron / molecule collisions, corona discharges in atmospheric air produce reactive species which can be enumerated as followed: primary charged products which should mainly be O2 , O and OH ions for the negatively charged species and N2 +, N+, O2 +, O+ ions for the positively charged species; neutral active products N, N2*, N*, O, O2*, O* and OH.
