In recent years there has been increasing research interest in the removal of nitrogen-oxides from exhaust gases using a pulsed corona discharge reactor. The pulsed streamer corona produces energetic electrons that excite, ionize and dissociate gas molecules, and by forming radicals that enhance the gas-phase chemical reactions which reduce the pollutant’s concentration.In this paper a method is presented, where the reaction rates of the electron-molecule collision are determined. The model is based on calculation of the energy of free electrons in the time and space varying field, considering the mean free path and the energy-dependent reaction cross sections of molecules. Knowing the rates, it is possible to solve the reaction kinetic equations, and to get the time-evolution of by-products, and the decomposition ratio of the pollutant gases.
