Nano and bio applications of plasma-induced chemical reactions in liquid using low temperature atmospheric pressure plasma jet

Associate Professor KATSUHISA KITANO [Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University]

Based on the new concept of inducing chemical reactions in liquid using an atmospheric pressure plasma cold enough to be touched with a finger, research into many types of bio applications is being carried out. By utilizing plasma to supply active species into a liquid, the reaction field can be used for various biomaterial applications using inorganic and/or organic reactions. An effective sterilization technique was developed using plasma-produced free radicals in a liquid, as part of research concerning plasma processing performed on the human body. By measuring the plasma-producing active species in gas and liquid phases, scientists are identifying the reaction mechanisms of physical, chemical and biological reactions.
