High-temperature microwave effects in liquid media
Keywords:microwave irradiation, heating mode, non-linear interactions, high-boiling liquid, viscosity
The heating behavior of high-boiling liquids under microwave (MW) irradiation was investigated. Linear and non-linear heating modes depending on the applied MW power level were observed. The non-linear interactions emerging at “high” power levels are ascribed to electromagnetic oscillations excitations resulting in non-linear heating speed growth and considerable decrease in energy input. The relationship between non-linearity degree and liquids’ viscosity was established. The observed effects have been shown to apply not only to mere heating, but also to high-temperature chemical reactions. Future perspectives and practical applications of the work are also discussed.
