The paper reports results of the optical Kerr effect investigation in the mixture of carbon disulphide and the air. Measurements were performed as a function of temperature and CS2 concentration. Assuming the statistical-molecular theory of the optically induced birefringence, the values of the optical and molar Kerr constants as well as polarizability and optical anisotropy were found. The observed deviations of the temperature dependence of Kerr effect from the theoretical predictions indicate the presence of strong molecular interactions in the studied mixtures.
