Problem statement: In the present study, a new correlation between the optical basiciry which describes the electronic charge clouds around the oxide glass and the dielectric constant has been proposed through the molar polarizability of the binary oxide glasses. Approach: Two experimental forms have been suggested relating the optical basicity and the molar electronic polarizability. Hence, the dielectric constant and the optical basicity for some binary glass systems can be deduced. Results: The molar polarizability and the dielectric constant of these glasses exhibit a linear relation as represented with the optical basicity. We have applied the proposed relation on the binary glasses. Conclusion: It was found that a good agreement as the values determined with experimental results determined by previous researchers.
