Evidence is presented to show that the observed glass transition process in simple alcohols may be represented as a hard to resolve combination of two glass transition processes: one due to the hydrogen (H-) bonded molecules and the other due to the non H-bonded molecules in the system. The experimentally observed secondary relaxation process is shown to be intermolecular in nature and corresponds to the latter glass transition process. A detailed discussion of the dielectric and mechanical-relaxation studies in the H-bonded systems is made.
