ABSTRACT The order-disorder transition of the silver atoms in the intercalation compound Ag TiS has been x 2 investigated using differential scanning calorimetry. Measurements were carried out for silver concentrations in the range 0 < x 0.5 and for temperatures in the region 150 K < T < 650 K. The AgxTiS2 samples used in this work were prepared by thermally intercalating Ag into TiS powders. The intercalated powders were 2 4 calibrated using X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction techniques. Values obtained for the critical temperature Tc were in good agreement with previously reported results and there was no measurable hysteresis in the transition. The la-tter result is consistent with the predicted second order nature of the transition. Results were also obtained for the specific heat of pure TiS and for the intercalation 2 b compounds Ag TiS The measured variation of the x 2 ' specific heat of the AgxTiS2 samples near Tc has been compared to the predictions of a two-dimensional theoretical model. iii
