A model for deducing dipole moments of solute molecules from the electric polarization of dilute solutions is revised. The treatment represents a modified Onsager model extended toward arbitrary-shaped molecules. A simplified approach for data evaluation is suggested and compared with the analytical solution for an ellipsoidal cavity and with a numerical solution for two spherical ions.
