Abstract: Abstract-A continuous production of carbon black and hydrogen has been investigated by thermal decomposition of methane using a prototype processing system of direct current (dc)-radio frequency (RF) hybrid thermal plasma, which has great advantage over other thermal sources like combustion or dc plasma torches in synthesizing new nanostructured materials by providing high-temperature environment and longer residence time for reactant gases due to its larger hot core region, and lower flow velocity. Appropria…
