Paper Abstract

The influence of microwaves on biological materials, water solutions and pure water is the subject of many experiments and theoretical investigations. Some aspects of this problem include the so-called 'non-thermal' effects and arising of metastable states in liquid water under the action of microwaves. We carried out experimental investigation of the thermal effects of microwave interaction with water solution. These experiments consist of the spectrophotometric investigation of the reaction of non- organic water solution on the influence of 25 GHz microwaves with the thermal intensity. We investigate the optical density of the 12 percent MgSO4 water solution, heated by microwaves to the different temperatures: 40 degrees C, 30 degrees C, and 25 degrees C. Water irradiated by low intensity continuous microwave radiation also exhibits an increase in optical density in near UV region, caused by the excitation of the electronic configuration of water molecule. The results obtained and therefore, indicative of changes in the water molecule itself under the action of microwave irradiation. The optical density spectra show these changes to be long-living.
