AbstractIn this work, the effect of microwaves on the hydrocarbonic liquid was studied. Small amounts of hydrocarbonic liquid were irradiated by microwave with different applied powers (220, 360, 600) Watt. Through tests and physical calculations of the irradiated samples of the hydrocarbonic liquid with different surface area, a major difference was found compared with the control samples. Carbon sediments were also noticed. The most important result is that each test revealed major differences that the octane No.(R+m/2). change from (43.6) to (93) at (600) Watt operated power. This indicates that molecular reform of hydrocarbonic liquid using microwave is a new and original method to enhance the octane No. This scientific fact which is not mentioned in any previous researches was explained throughout former researches dealing with the effect of microwaves, keeping in mind that the expected heat effect was studied by repetition of all the measurements under heat effect only.
