Plasma Processes and Polymers
During the last two decades, research efforts on the application of low temperature plasmas in biology and medicine have positioned nonequilibrium lowtemperature plasmas as a technology that has the potential of revolutionizing healthcare.[1,2] Low temperature plasmas can be applied in direct contact with living tissues to inactivate bacteria, to disinfect wounds and accelerate wound healing, and to induce damage in some cancer cells.[5–11]
