Complex dielectric measurements in the frequency range 10 MHz - 50 GHz have been carried out in 1-nitropropane-ethanol mixtures with various concentrations by using a time domain reflectometry (TDR) at 283 K to 298 K. The dielectric relaxation response of 1-nitropropane-ethanol mixtures have been analyzed by using Debye model. The dielectric parameters such as static dielectric constant, relaxation time, excess permittivity, excess inverse relaxation time, Kirkwood correlation factor, enthalpy of activation and Gibbs free energy of activation have been determined for 1-nitropropane-ethanol system. The study confirms that the intermolecular interaction varies significantly with the increase in concentration of 1-nitropropane in ethanol.
