Thermal and non-thermal phenomena in microwave processing

Abstract

It is known that microwave heating differs from the conventional heating in the following characteristic phenomena: Rapid heating, Internal heating, Selective heating and the so-called Non-thermal effects. Although there are many discussions and criticisms on the non-thermal effects so far, it attracts attention of the engineers and the researchers. Therefore, investigations still have been performed for finding new processing of materials, such as energy effective process, special process for developing new functional materials and so on. It is of significance to consider the nature of non-thermal effect in microwave processing. In this article, it is intended to discuss some phenomena in microwave processing obtained in author's previous studies from viewpoints of thermal or non-thermal effect, they are classified into the following three groups: 1. Thermal effects appeared to be non-thermal, 2. The microwave heating accompanied with other phenomena and 3. Inherent phenomena raised by MW irradiation.
