Water demonstrates antimicrobial properties after it is treated with room temperature non-thermal plasma. In this work, we have applied UV spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, Electron Spin Resonance, and Mass spectroscopy experiments to investigate chemical species in water treated with non-thermal plasma. We propose that HONOO may be the major species contributing to the antimicrobial effects of this solution. However, it is also possible that the antimicrobial effect is due to the combination of all the radicals and oxidants in the solution
