The approach for the estimation of the antisite defect energy in the chalcopyrite compounds is developed. The energy of antisite defect is expressed as a function of the chalcopyrite - zinc blende transformation temperature. The energies of antisite defects in the CuInSe2, CuInTe2, AgInSe2, ZnGeAs2, ZnSnP2, ZnSnAs2, CdGeAs2, and CdSnAs2 chalcopyrite compounds are estimated. Conditions needed for the molecular beam epitaxy of the ordered and disordered ZnSnP2 are considered.
