Samples of Mo2S3 system and substituted derivatives with Cr, Nb, Cu and Mn have been studied. The resistivity, thermoelectric power, magnetic susceptibility and specific heat indicate clear phase transition at temperatures between 200 and 310 K. X-ray investigations establish the transitions at these temperatures as structural changes. Careful analysis of the data helps to obtain working values for a model for the energy band. Carrier density, effective mass, mobility, band overlap parameter, density of states for the electrons and holes in the overlapping bands at the Fermi level and the band gap for a higher conduction band are obtained.
