Paper Abstract

The paper reports results of the temperature studies of the optical Kerr effect in p-nitrotoluene and p-dichlorobenzene. The measurements were carried out in the temperature range from 330 to 360 K. The values of Kerr constants for both liquids were determined. The temperature dependence of the optical Kerr effect for p-nitrotoluene revealed deviations from the theoretical predictions which indicates the presence of strong dipolar interactions in this liquid, hindering optical orientation of its molecules.
