In our third experiment, we changed the density of nitrogen through the addition of heat energy to the anode. A computer simulation confirmed the same phenomenon. Then the copper anode was replaced with an antimony anode. We found that antimony worked better than nitrogen as a third element.
Finally, in the fourth experiment, we used an industrial ozone generator including ceramic dielectrics and a titanium expanded metal electrode. A decrease in the temperature of the cooling water led to a proportional increase in ozone. It follows the formula of van't Hoff. After spattering the surface of the electrodes with argon gas and supplying the ozone generator with 99% oxygen, we were able to produce ozone which was more than 20% higher in concentration than primary state ozone under the same conditions. The ozone generator produced ozone in high yield efficiency due to the optimum density of a third element like nitrogen on the surface of the electrodes. Antimony works better than nitrogen does as a third element.
