Amorphous alloys, more commonly referred to as metallic glasses, represent a striking advance in inorganic materials technology of recent times. While the probable atomic arrangements in noncrystalline alloys have aroused scientific curiosity, their unusual mechanical strength, attractive magnetic properties and remarkable corrosion resistance have excited technological interest. This report describes the progress of research at Varanasi on the following aspects: adaptation, innovation and development of techniques for rapid solidification, study and refinement of structural models, calculation of thermodynamic quantities, evaluation of strength and corrosion resistance and studies of glass to crystal transition.

Possible experiments in space on ceramics, composites and inorganic glasses are listed. Advantages in processing these materials under microgravity conditions, anticipated effects and likely problems are discussed. Theoretical conclusions and experimental results to date are reviewed. It is suggested that experiments on metallic glasses in space could prove to be rewarding.

The paper surveys the available literature on the direct influence of microgravity on diffusion in liquid metals, rate of solidification, growth of dendrites, undercooling of liquid metals and alloys and monotectic solidification. Agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental observations is discussed critically and areas requiring further study are highlighted.

In the zinc-bismuth system, a monotectic reaction occurs at 689 K and 0·6 at.% Bi composition. Rapid solidification of the as-cast monotectic alloy led to a micromorphology in which bismuth was uniformly and bimodally distributed as small droplets in the zinc matrix. Statistical analysis of the electron micrographs obtained from different transparent regions of the foils revealed that the size of most of the droplets was about 6 nm. These droplets undercooled by 132 K. An analysis of the nucleation rate measurements shows that the activation energy barrier to nucleation is of the order of 39·8 kcal/mol at the maximum undercooling.

Solidification at very high rates of cooling results in considerable refinement in the microstructure of alloys. It enables the formation of extremely fine grains, extends solid solubilities and leads to the nucleation of many metastable crystalline phases. We discuss briefly the methods of rapid solidification and their impact on microstructure and structure of alloys. Each of the aspects of structure development is illustrated with examples from steels.

When milling micrometer thin Nd2Fe14B platelets, of an average 1–2 mm diameter, in toluene in a closed reactor, part of the toluene decomposes at the surface of the platelets and yields nascent hydrogen and carbon/low hydrocarbons. The hydrogen diffuses into the Nd2Fe14B platelets and the carbon forms a thin surface passivation layer of the platelets, forming the stable Nd2Fe14BH
