Paper Abstract

Mist singlet oxygen generator (Mist-SOG) has been developed in order to increase the BHP utilization. On the other hand, Mist-SOG generates much more water vapor than conventional SOG because the heat capacity of the BHP is small. It is well known that the water vapor deactivates the excited iodine. In order to remove the water vapor, we developed a jet-cold trap. In this method, a nozzle sprayed a chilled H2O2 at 238K with a thin layer form to the gas flow directly in order to get the large specific surface for the water vapor. As a result of experiment, Water vapor partial pressure reduced from 3.3 Torr at the BHP flow rate of 2.2 ml/s and Cl2 flow rate of 3.5 mmol/s for the 65µm BHP droplets.
