Amorphous transition metal/alloy particles (
prepared by the reduction of the metal salts, and their catalytic properties, corrosion resistance and magnetic properties studied. The catalytic properties of the amorphous
particles will be examined and compared with crystalline equivalents. The corrosion resistant properties of the particles will be
utilized to produce oxidatively stable suspensions. Finally, materials will be formed by warm compaction of the particles to produce materials with possible magnetic and engineering applications. The investigations will involve the use of Mossbauer spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, magnetic measurements, mass spectrometry for catalytic performance, etc.
