Microwave effect on diffusion: a possible mechanism for non-thermal effect

Is found experimentally than that a microwave exposure makes faster the process of diffusion in water, being 1.7 times shorter the time required for the reduction of initial resistance of the solution by 10%. The authors propose that this supports the idea of the role of microwave radiation and dipolar water molecules, that causes high-frequency alterations of hydrogen bonds between water molecules (altering viscosity and making faster diffusion). This is a possible mechanism for non-thermal effects.
