Objective: The objective of this work is to study the intermolecular interaction and hydrogen bonding of the two binary mixtures at different temperatures which are determined from static dielectric constants and their excess properties.

Methods: Dielectric measurements have been carry out using a sensor which is based on frequency domain reflectometry technique. The excess dielectric properties, Kirkwood correlation factor and Bruggeman factor of the binary mixtures have also been calculated and reported in this paper.

Results: The positive and negative behavior of excess dielectric permittivity and variation in linear relation in Bruggeman factor suggests the presence of intermolecular interaction in the binary mixtures. The angular Kirkwood correlation factor confirms the parallel and antiparallel orientation of the dipoles in the mixtures.

Conclusion: The static dielectric constant of binary systems increases with the addition of the volume fraction of water and decreases with increase in temperature. From excess properties, it is confirmed that there is an intermolecular interaction between the studied binary systems. Such study is useful in drug-receptor interaction.

Keywords: Static dielectric constant, Excess dielectric properties, Kirkwood correlation factor, Bruggeman factor, Water-alcohol binary systems
