The dielectric strength of the Debye relaxation in the binary mixtures of two isomeric monohydroxy alcohols, 2-ethyl-1-butanol (2E1B) and 4-methyl-2-pentanol (4M2P), is studied at low temperature near glass transition. Enhanced dielectric strength is exhibited in the mixtures, remarkably different from...
