Summary

Plasma which is not a solid, liquid or gas, represents a highly reactive state of matter. Scientists at the Pierre-Gilles de Gennes Institute in Paris are studying new chemical reactions produced by plasmas reacting inside mini-reactors embedded on microchips. At the crossroads of plasma physics and microfluidics, the team is trying to develop a more environmentally friendly chemistry.
