Straddling the boundary between chemical, plasma, and gas discharge physics, this text is devoted to the physical basis of non-equilibrium plasma chemistry. The authors first describe the fundamental problems of plasma chemistry, and then explore the theoretical basis by discussing the elementary processes and kinetics of generation, recombination, and transformation of charged and excited species. They devote the remainder of the text to the specific plasma chemical processes, their kinetics, energy balance, energy efficiency optimization, and the application of non-thermal plasma for pollution control and water/air remediation developed from the new field of high pressure, non-equilibrium plasma chemistry.
