Some microscopic properties of a tetramethylurea (TMU) water solution were investigated using neutron scattering methods. It was established that over the concentration range investigated a remarkable attractive contribution arises due to hydrophobic interaction. Orientational perturbation of the solvent around the TMU molecules was observed. All types of diffusional motion are inhibited and their concentration dependence is rather small.
