Analysis of Deposited Byproducts of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Like Toluene, Xylene Subjected to Di-Electric Barrier Discharge (DBD)

S. Mohanty | S. P. Das

Abstract: Hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) coming out as byproducts in industrial sector are matter of serious concern. The methods available to destroy are very costly. So in industries it is very difficult to solve this environmental problem from their budget. Decomposition of organic compounds (VOCs) using di-electric barrier discharge (DBD) technique using argon as base gas, is proved to be very efficient and cost effective method. In this communication the residue deposited on the floor of the chamber is analyzed by spectroscopic technique and the byproducts of decomposition of VOCs are diagnosed and possible chemical reactions to arrive at the byproducts from the products are reported.

Keywords: Volatile organic compounds VOCs, DBD, FTIR, UV-Visible
