Paper Abstract

In both solid phases of EBPA the dielectric relaxation phenomenon has been observed in the frequency range from 1 Hz to 10 MHz. The process observed in a metastable phase K1 is stronger than this observed in a stable phase K2. Analysis of the temperature dependence of complex dielectric permittivity points to a non-Debye relaxation in each solid phase. THe composition of two Cole-Cole functions has been fitted successfully to the observed results. Each of two molecular motions extracted is of the Arrhenius type. Processes have the same activation energy barriers in a stable phase K2 and in a metastable phase K1.
