The Plasma-Water Interaction: Evidence of Things Not Easily Seen

A new study from the group, which is in a June issue of Nature Communications, shows that electrons from an atmospheric-pressure plasma can be dissolved [solvated] into water — forming a layer of ‘solvated’ electrons only about five water molecules deep. Equally as important, the team has also proven that using the plasma approach, solvated electrons, which are among the most powerful chemical agents in nature, can be generated without expensive vacuum equipment [to pressurize or depressurize the plasma] or the use of harmful radiation.
