The slow dielectric Debye relaxation of monoalcohols in confined geometries
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

Broadband dielectric relaxation measurements have been performed on monoalcohols confined in the quasi-two-dimensional space between clay platelets and the quasi-one-dimensional pores of approximately 10 angstrom diameter in a molecular sieve. Interestingly, the results show that the slow Debye-like process is present even in these severe confinements, proving that structural models that are based on two-dimensional or three-dimensional cluster formations as the structural origin of the Debye-like process can be excluded. Rather, the insensitivity of its time-scale to confinements suggests that it is of local character and in some way related to the lifetime or breaking and reformation of hydrogen bonds.
