We investigated toluene decomposition with a single-stage plasma catalytic system operated at atmospheric pressure and working at reduced temperature (T <75 °C), where a synergistic catalyst was integrated on ferroelectric BaTiO3 beads with a high dielectric constant. The catalyst species were characterized by FE-SEM and XPS before and after the experiment. The MnO2/BaTiO3 catalyst showed high stability in igniting plasma during destruction of toluene for 230 hours in a lifetime test.
