We have investigated the structural and lattice dynamical properties of XB2(X = Sc, V, Ti) by using first-principles total energy calculations. Specifically, the lattice parameters (a, c) of the stable phase, the bond lengths of X-B and B-B atoms, phonon dispersion curves and the corresponding density of states, and some thermodynamical quantities such as internal energy, entropy, heat capacity, and their temperature-dependent behaviours, are presented. The obtained results for structural parameters are in good agreement with the available experimental and other theoretical studies. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
