Wide glass-forming range in Zr-M alloys (M = late transition metal) combined with a simple, often linear, variation of their physical properties with composition makes it possible to deduce physical properties of pure amorphous zirconium. We explore this possibility by using our experimental results for the magnetic susceptibility and superconducting transition temperature of paramagnetic amorphous Zr – (Co,Ni,Cu) alloys extending over a wide composition range. By combining these results with the literature results for the low temperature specific heat of the same alloy systems, we obtained a set of parameters associated with the electronic structure of the amorphous Zr. The comparison of these parameters with the results of the electronic structure calculations for different crystalline phases of Zr and with the results of the atomic structure and initial crystallisation studies of the same alloy systems indicate a fcc-like local atomic structure for amorphous Zr.
