Viscometry and scan rate dependent heat capacity measurements have been performed on the polyalcohol sorbitol which has recently been useful as a solvent for various spectroscopic studies. The present measurements establish that the relaxation time characteristics of this multilaterally hydrogen-bonded liquid follows the VTF equation over some 11 orders of magnitude in the relaxation time.
