Abstract

Broadband dielectric measurements were carried out at isobaric and isothermal conditions up to 1.75 GPa for reconsidering the relaxation dynamics of decahydroisoquinoline, previously investigated by Richert [R. Richert, K. Duvvuri, and L.-T. Duong, J. Chem. Phys. 118, 1828 (2003)] at atmospheric pressure. The relaxation time of the intense secondary relaxation tau(beta) seems to be insensitive to applied pressure, contrary to the alpha-relaxation times tau(alpha). Moreover, the separation of the alpha- and beta-relaxation times lacks correlation between shapes of the alpha-process and beta-relaxation times, predicted by the coupling model [see for example, K. L. Ngai, J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 15, S1107 (2003)], suggesting that the beta process is not a true Johari-Goldstein (JG) relaxation. From the other side, by performing measurements under favorable conditions, we are able to reveal a new secondary relaxation process, otherwise suppressed by the intense beta process, and to determine the temperature dependence of its relaxation times, which is in agreement with that of the JG relaxation.
