Recently biocompatible hydrogels are being studied as vehicles for storage and delivery of reactive chemical species generated by non-thermal plasmas to be used in various biomedical applications. In this article we studied the direct interaction of plasmas with macromolecules in water solution and we found out a mutual effect between them: plasma treatment can modify the structure of macromolecules and macromolecules affect the chemical species generated by plasmas in solution.
These results advance the basic knowledge on the chemistry of non-thermal plasmas and are extremely useful in view of the translation of this technology to the clinics.
