Shear bands generally initiate strain softening and result in low ductility of metallic glasses. In this Letter, we report high-resolution electron microscope observations of shear bands in a ductile metallic glass. Strain softening caused by localized shearing was found to be effectively prevented by nanocrystallization that is in situ produced by plastic(More)
The lack of new functional applications for metallic glasses hampers further development of these fascinating materials. In this letter, we report for the first time that the MgZn-based metallic glass powders have excellent functional ability in degrading azo dyes which are typical organic water pollutants. Their azo dye degradation efficiency is about 1000(More)
Fe-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) have attracted great attention due to their unique magnetic and mechanical properties, but few applications have been materialized because of their brittleness at room temperature. Here we report a new Fe(50)Ni(30)P(13)C(7) BMG which exhibits unprecedented compressive plasticity (>20%) at room temperature without final(More)
Authors stressed an importance of low oxygen content of slowly cooled ingots for the homogeneous amorphous half top layers of arc-melted button ingots. The quenching procedure was also not favored to produce amorphous top layers. However authors made a liquid quenching machine to enhance the cooling speed. Photographs Figs.4(b) and 5 are troublesome.(More)
Nanostructured Al–Fe alloys produced by e-beam deposition: static and dynamic tensile properties Abstract Three different aluminum–iron alloys were produced by electron-beam deposition with the iron content in the range 1.15–1.71 at.%. These alloys did not contain any identifiable iron-bearing particles, and exhibited full density with high-angle grain(More)
The high plasticity of metallic glasses is highly desirable for a wide range of novel engineering applications. However, the physical origin of the ductile/brittle behaviour of metallic glasses with various compositions and thermal histories has not been fully clarified. Here we have found that metallic glasses with compositions at or near intermetallic(More)
Nanoporous metallic glass Pd, which was fabricated by dealloying of a glassy metallic alloy Pd(30)Ni(50)P(20), exhibited a remarkable catalytic activity for the Suzuki-coupling reaction between iodoarenes and arylboronic acids under mild conditions. Moreover, the catalyst can be reused several times without a significant loss of catalytic activity.

Thermal stability and crystallization of three multicomponent glassy alloys, Al86Y7Ni5Co1Fe0.5Pd0.5, Al85Y8Ni5Co1Fe0.5Pd0.5 and Al84Y9Ni4Co1.5Fe0.5Pd1, were examined to assess the ability to form the mixture of amorphous (am) and fcc-aluminum (α-Al) phases. On heating, the glass transition into the supercooled liquid is shown by the 85Al and 84Al glasses.(More)
