Abstract:Various active species can be formed by a pulsed discharge in water, and these active species may play an important role in killing bacteria and degrading organic compounds. In recent years, interest in the formation of OH, O3 and H2O2 has grown enormously. The O is also a very powerful oxidant, but little research has been done on the oxygen radical. In this paper, production of atomic oxygen by the pulsed streamer corona discharge in water has been identified. The effects of applied voltage polarity, peak voltage, oxygen and inert gases bubbling on radical formation have been investigated.

- The objectives of International Journal of Environment and Waste Management are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, government agencies, academics and research institutions, and professionals working in the field, and to provide a forum for them to disseminate information. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy. It will serve as a vehicle for the documentation and dissemination of what government bodies, research agencies, international bodies, universities, aid agencies, industries, and environmental scientists and professionals are doing in the areas of environmental and waste management.
