The kinetics of reactions in the plasma of a spark discharge in methane at atmospheric pressure is analyzed using numerical simulation, taking account of the gas-dynamic expansion of the channel. The processes leading to the formation and annihilation of CHx radicals are investigated and the conditions under which their maximum concentration is reached are determined. The results obtained are of interest for plasma chemical technologies for processing natural gas.
