Abstract (Summary)

Studies of a non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma source on an organic heterocycle were conducted to determine reaction parameters and rearrangement conditions. The target compound 3,7-bis(dimethylamino)-phenothiazin-5-ium chloride, commonly referred to as methylene blue, was determine to polymerize after exposure to a non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma source. The presence of charge retention and a free electron radical were detected inherent to the polymer. Evaluation of the structure and mechanism of the polymer were also presented for evidence and clarification. Additional description of the plasma source environment was correlated to the manipulation of the target compound.
