A device which cools a discharge electrode to cause condensation and then electrostatically atomize the condensed moisture by applying high voltage to the discharge electrode has been developed. The electrostatic particulate water generated through the electrostatic atomization by this device has been confirmed to have a peak particle diameter of approximately 20 nm. In addition, simultaneous formation of radicals was verified by ESR analysis.<BR> It has been confirmed that this electrostatic particulate water has the effects of deodorization by adsorbing/absorbing odors and deactivation of pollen or mite antigens. An air cleaner equipped with this electrostatic atomization device has been developed.<BR> Further, when this device was employed on a hair dryer, it was found to have the effects of increasing the moisture-holding power of hair, giving hair softness and increasing the tensile breaking strength of hair. This is presumed to be due to the abundant moisture given to hair compared to negative ion devices.
