Effect of alpha-amino acids on the interaction of millimeter waves with water. med./bio.

Published in: Crit Rev Biomed Eng 2001; 29 (1): 134-141

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To study the dependence of millimeter wave irradiation absorption in different aqueous solutions of alpha-amino acids.

Background/further details

The dependence of millimeter wave irradiation absorption was measured at three wavelengths (lambda = 2, 5.84, and 7.12 mm).

Endpoint

Exposure

No exposure details are available.

Time of investigation:
  • during exposure

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Various mechanisms are outlined of intermolecular interaction of alpha-amino acids in aqueous solutions under exposure, such as the raised absorption of water molecules in solute hydration shells (negative hydration) and the decreased absorption of water molecules in solute hydration shells (positve hydrophilic and hydrophobic hydration).
