Dielectric constants of liquids and liquid mixtures

  • D. S. Subbaramaiya


The Raman-Krishnan theory of the dielectric behaviour of liquids based on the idea of an anisotropic polarisation field has been tested in the case of toluene in which case, since the electric moment is small, effects due to association are negligible. The theory gives very satisfactory results and has been extended to the case of binary liquid mixtures and the formula obtained has been successfully applied to the case of benzene-toluene mixtures.
