  • ABSTRACT AlMgB14 ceramics were reported as high-hardness materials over a decade ago. While different synthesis routes for processing of AlMgB14 ceramics were reported in the past, however the synthesis routes are still not optimised and present a significant challenge to the manufacturers. In this work six different synthesis routes were explored for the synthesis of AlMgB14 powder. The synthesised compositions were characterised by XRD, where weight fractions of each phase were calculated by… CONTINUE READING
