We report the temperature dependence of the specific heat of , and the temperature dependence of the lattice parameter, as determined by X-ray powder diffraction. A first-order phase transition and a glass transition are found to occur at temperatures below the corresponding transition temperatures of pure . The transition temperatures depend on x. Specific-heat measurements on a sample with show the orientational ordering transition at K and the glass transition at . Contrary to pure , the temperature dependence of the lattice parameter of () does not show an anomaly at the glass transition, which is explained by the already expanded lattice of . The energy difference between major and minor orientations is determined as 19.1 meV.
