Abstract

A combined flame-radio frequency plasma reactor consisting of conventional burner with the superimposed radio-frequency discharge was constructed. The temperature of neutral gas in the plasma of such combined burner is increased with respect of conventional burner. The optimization of this new kind of plasma reactor was studied with respect to decomposition of flammable organic compounds.
