The dielectric properties of powdered molecular gyrotops with a thiophenedioxide-diyl are reported. Crystals without a solvent molecule show usual dielectric relaxation spectra due to orientation polarization of the dipolar rotor, while a crystal having ethanol as the crystalline solvent molecule showed novel temperature-dependent dielectric relaxation switching by crystal-to-crystal phase transition, which is induced by hydrogen-bonding interactions between thiophene dioxide and ethanol.
