•The relaxation time is vary with the chain length of alcohols and substituted amides are noticed.•The Bruggeman plot shows a deviation from linearity.•This deviation was attributed to some sort of molecular interaction which may take place between the alcohols and substituted amides.•The excess static permittivity and excess inverse relaxation time values vary from negative to positive for all the systems indicating the solute-solvent interaction to exist between alcohols and substituted amides for all the dynamics of the mixture.
