Original Abstract

The gaseous products formed in nitrogen/methane discharge were analysed a GC-MS (Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer). During the experiments the formation of stable products and their dependence on the flow rate and discharge power was investigated. The main products formed in our atmospheric glow discharge were found to be C2H2, HCN, and CH3CN. These same molecules have been detected in Titan's atmosphere and the present experiments may provide some insights into the plasma chemical mechanisms prevalent in Titan's atmosphere.
