In this work, exploratory tests were carried out aimed at studying the variables that allow obtaining electrolytic plasma (PE) at low cell voltages and / or at low energy. For this, the electrolyte effects were studied, obtaining conditions that allow PE to be generated at less than 250 Vdc. The results show that the use of inert solutions with 1:12 or numerically lower and temperatures close to boiling correspond to the optimal ones to obtain plasma at low voltages. The nanograin electrode between 14 and 24 nm.
