Abstract:

A plasma jet has been used as the source of energy for producing a high temperature medium for purposes of chemical synthesis. The tungsten carbides WC and W2C were formed in a helium plasma jet from either tungsten or tungsten trioxide WO3 and methane. Similarly the tantalum carbides TaC and Ta2C were produced from tantalum and tantalum pentoxide Ta2O5 with methane in a like manner. Hydrogen sulfide was successfully synthesized from its elements in a helium plasma jet.
