Understanding plasma-ethanol interactions (Green Chemistry 23, 2021, 3983)

Plasma-electrochemistry has been successfully used to synthesize a range of metal–oxide nanoparticles and quantum dots (QDs). While nanoparticles and QDs can be an end to this process, they can also be viewed as ‘chemical probes’ that help understanding the underlying and progenitor chemical reactions. We have therefore studied plasma–ethanol interactions during the synthesis of CuO QDs (Green Chemistry 23, 2021, 3983).
