Dielectric relaxation measurements of a typical small molecular glassformer, dipropyleneglycol dibenzoate show the presence of two secondary relaxations.

Abstract

Dielectric relaxation measurements of a typical small molecular glassformer, dipropyleneglycol dibenzoate show the presence of two secondary relaxations. Their dynamic properties differ in the equilibrium liquid and glassy states, as well as the changes during structural recovery after rapid quenching the liquid to form a glass. These differences enable us to identify the slower secondary relaxation as the genuine Johari-Goldstein (JG) beta-relaxation [G. P. Johari and M. Goldstein, J. Chem. Phys. 53, 2372 (1970)], acting as the precursor of the primary alpha-relaxation. Agreement between the JG beta-relaxation time and the independent relaxation time of the coupling model leads to predicted quantitative relations between the JG beta-relaxation and the alpha-relaxation that are supported by the experimental data.
