We present an analysis of the entanglement characteristics in the Majumdar-Ghosh (MG) or J1-J2 Heisenberg model. For a system consisting of up to 28 spins, there is a deviation from the scaling behaviour of the entanglement entropy characterizing the unfrustrated Heisenberg chain as soon as J2 > 0.25. This feature can be used as an indicator of the dimer phase transition that occurs at J2 = J2* = 0.2411 J1. Additionally, we also consider entanglement at the MG point J2=0.5 J1.
