This study focuses on the construction of a glow-discharge plasma microelectrode and its potential for usage as a lower-energy synthetic alternative for nano-crystalline multinuclear inorganic solids. Several electrode designs were constructed and assessed, and two different systems showed positive proof of plasma generation. Though a glow-discharge plasma could be generated via both systems, neither produced a reactive plasma plume and thus could not be used as planned for synthesis of inorganic solids.
