<p>The chromium dichalcogenides MCrX2 (M = Cu, Ag, Na, X = O, S, Se) are promising materials for modern electronics. These materials have the potential properties for practical usage : ionic conductivity [1], thermoelectric properties [2], magnetic arrangement[3-4], colossal magnetoresistance, phase metal-insulator transition [4].</p> <p>There are several different ways of purposeful control of electric and magnetic properties of the chromium dichalcogenides MCrX2: cationic substitution of the chromium atoms with vanadium, iron or manganese atoms (CuCr1-xM'xS2, M' = V, Fe, Mn), co-intercalation of different kinds of atoms into the van-der-waals gap (for example silver in the Cu1-xAgxCrS2), changing type of the chalcogen (CuCrX2, X = S, Se, Te).</p> <p>Synthesis of functional materials based on MCrX2 with necessary properties requires distribution control of atoms on the crystallographic positions in the crystal lattice. This parameter essentially depends on technology of synthesis. In this regard, it is appropriate to use physical methods sensitive to the character of the local environment of atoms in synthesized samples. The XANES-spectroscopy can be used as such method (XANES - X-ray Near Edge Structure).</p> <p>In the present study a complex experimental and theoretical investigation of the XANES-structures of X-ray absorption K-edges of intercalated MCrX2 (M = Cu, Ag, X = O, S, Se) and cation-substituted dichalcogenides CuCr1-xM'xS2, (M' = V, Fe, x = 0-0.40) have been carried out. Based on these data the influence of cation substitution of chromium atoms and the influence of types of the chalcogens and the intercalates to the near fine structure of X-ray absorption spectra of the elements in the dichalcogenides CuCr1-xVxS2 and MCrX2 (M = Cu, Ag, X = O, S, Se) have been investigated.</p> <p>The reported investigation was funded by RFBR according to the research project No. 16-32-00612.</p> <p>[1] Almukhametov R.F., Yakshibaev R.A., Gabitov E.V. et al. // Phys.
