Summary:

Is this technology sound?

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm looking for an air purifier because of dusts from the neighbor's 4 month long renovation and I only became aware of air purifiers lately.

I came across the Sharp Plasmacluster:

https://global.sharp/pci/en/

But I read that ozones are not safe. https://molekule.science/air-purifiers-ionic-ionizers-bad-or-good/

So the Plasmacluster is clearly not ozone based or is it one in disguised?

I tried to google for any negative comments about the technology and came across this:

[unacceptable reference removed by the Moderators]

What is your thought about the Plasmaclusters? Would you put one in your own room. And why?

Any comments appreciated. Thank you!

On the other hand, evidence showed that NAIs could high-efficiently remove PM including ultrafine PM (Figure 3), providing an alternative way to clean indoor air especially during haze episodes.

The systems are sold for other purposes but are good at PM (particulate matter) removal. How this plays out for your application I cannot say.

Let's go to this sharp plasmaclusters air purifier sold at amazon for example:

This is short youtube summary how it could deactivate viruses in air (?)

My concern is whether these OH radicals can directly affect your lungs or organs if you inhale them? Is the technology based on known or proven principle?

The link I gave you listed all of the human subject effects testing done - page 10. In general there were no strongly negative effects, some few minor reports of headaches, eye irritation, etc., which you expect to see.
Positive effects were a mixed bag - there were a lot of 'no effect' kinds of results.

Some of the links are to less than top notch journals as well.

Let's call it answered. Next time please do not link manufacturer's materials - videos, papers, etc., in your posts. We will just lock the post right away.
