Abstract : Using test data, a kinetic analysis of the reaction of H with O in silent electrical discharge was performed. In view of the excess of H in the gas mixture, the analysis was done according to the rate of O consumption. In accordance with the specificity of activation in the electrogaseous reactions, a first order was assumed for these reactions for the calculation of the kinetics of the H2O2 formation and decomposition. Due to the special conditions in silent electric discharge (small current density, energy, etc.) the irreversibility of the process is emphasized. It was found that the kinetics of a process in an all-glass reactor can be satisfactorily calculated by using equations of consecutive irreversible reactions of the first order. (Author)
