It was pointed out recentlyl that the Curie temperature of the weak ferromagnet ZrZn2 is quite sensitive to lattice order and that it decreases with increased disorder. A well-disordered (or amorphous) ZrZn2 can be prepared effectively by quick condensation; we report here our results of low temperature heat capacity on such samples.
