Compounds of MoS2 that were obtained from melt and containing various amounts of radioactive isotope Mo99 and S35 were synthesized. The magnitude of specific surface of radioactive MoS2 samples differs noticeably from nonradioactive, increasing in proportion to the growth of specific radioactivity. For compounds with S35, the surface increases smoothly with increase in specific radioactivity, attaining about a 3-fold increase at a 30-microcurieg radioactivity level introduction of Mo99 led to a much sharper rise. At a specific radioactivity of 5 microcuriesg, the value of the MoS2 surface constitutes 18.83 sq mg and MoS2 equals 10.16 sq mg. The energy of beta radiation of the isotope introduced affected the magnitude of specific surface of the solid compounds formed. The radioactive radiation was regarded as exerting an effect on the magnitude of specific surface of radioactive compounds only in the process of formation of the MoS2 crystals.
