A novel Double Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DDBD) and an atmospheric pressure plasma jet (APPJ) was generated with a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) column by AC high voltage have been developed. This reactor can produce cold atmospheric plasmas (CAP) that formed in air reactive oxygen species (ROS). These species among others are O3, was quantified in the outlet of reactors. The analysis for ROS has been conducted by using medium that we call Plasma-Activated Medium (PAM). Some analysis conducted including variation of exposure times by ROS to the plasma-activated medium. In addition, concentration-voltage characteristics of ozone production. Peroxide Value, Acid Value and Viscosity of virgin coconut oil (VCO, as PAM) increased with increasing exposure time of O3. The concentration of hydrogen peroxide in water (as PAM) has been measured. The concentration of H2O2 179 μM with exposure time for 1 minute. The concentration of H2O2 in the study is quite high when compared with some other research results. The results showed that increased exposure time resulted in increased concentrations of ozone and hydrogen peroxide.
