Monomer fragmentation in an ethylene glycol discharge as shown in the figure can be studied using FTIR spectroscopy. Along with optical emission spectroscopy and plasma measurements with a floating probe, we discuss the pulsed EG discharge – gas phase, surface interactions, and plasma physics. Information on possible dissociation pathways and polyethylene glycol film deposition characteristics are reported in this paper.
