As a kind of volatile organic compound, styrene is a typical industrial pollutant with high toxicity and odorous smell. In this study, the removal of malodorous styrene simulation waste gas was carried out in a self-made wire-tube dielectric barrier discharge reactor. The decomposition efficiency of the reaction was investigated under different applied voltages and flow rates. The results showed that nearly 99.6 % of styrene could be removed with a concentration of 3,600 mg/m3 and the applied voltage of 10.8 kV. However, the selectivity of CO2 and CO showed that the mineralization efficiency of styrene was less than 25 %. The by-products of the reaction, including O3, NO x and other intermediates, were also detected and analyzed under different applied voltages. The relationships between the applied voltage and the quantity of final product (CO2) and by-products (intermediate organics, NO x , O3) were investigated. The reaction mechanism was also described according to the bond energy and the intermediates that formed.
