Phase relationships in the Fe-rich region of the Ce–Nd–B–Fe quaternary system at 773 K

Ketong Luo , Jianlie Liang , Jinming Zhu and Xuehong Cui EMAIL logo


The Fe-rich corner of the Ce–Nd–B–Fe quaternary system at 773 K has been experimentally investigated by means of X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopy equipped with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy techniques. No quaternary compound was observed in this system. Ce2Fe14B and Nd2Fe14B were found to form the continuous solid solution (Ce,Nd)2Fe14B. Ce-Fe4B4 and NdFe4B4 also form the solid solution (Ce,Nd)-Fe4B4. The isothermal section consists of 8 three-phase regions and 2 four-phase regions.
