Orientationally disordered (OD) mixed crystals formed between cyanoadamantane (CN-A) and chloroadamantane (Cl-A) have been thermodynamically characterized by means of thermal analysis and X-ray diffraction. The dynamics of these OD mixed crystals has been studied by means of broad band dielectric spectroscopy. Results evidence that dynamics of the α-relaxation process associated with the overall molecular tumbling slows down when molecules of CN-A are substituted by molecules of Cl-A. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
