The purpose of this paper is to show that if σ is the maximal spectral type of Chacon's transformation, then for any d ≠ d' we have $σ^{*d} ⊥ σ^{*d'}$. First, we establish the disjointness of convolutions of the maximal spectral type for the class of dynamical systems that satisfy a certain algebraic condition. Then we show that Chacon's automorphism belongs to this class.
