The monochromatization effect (M-effect), which consists in the reduction of an electronegative-electropositive gas mixtures discharge emission spectrum to only a few or a single line, was largely explained in our previous published papers together with their generation mechanisms, namely the polar ion-ion recombination and the energy resonance condition. This paper presents a kinetic model for the M-effect based on the radiative and collisional processes which appear between 1s_2, 1s_3, 1s_4 and 1s_5 Paschen levels, in Penning gas mixtures, where this effect was observed to be the most powerful.
