The binary and ternary quasi-ordered alloys [Fe.sub.65][Al.sub.35] and [Fe.sub.65][Al.sub.35-x][M.sub.x] ([M.sub.x] = Ga, B; x = 5 at.%) were obtained by heat treatment of disordered nanocrystalline alloys synthesized by mechanochemistry. The alloys from the original powders (99.98% Fe and 99.99% Al) and a Ga or B (99.98%) additive in the appropriate weight ratio were synthesized in a FRITSCH P-7 planetary ball mill with vials and balls of hardened steel in an Ar atmosphere for 16 hours.

Mechanochemistry is the area of chemistry that involves the use of mechanical force to induce a chemical change, separate from the other well-studied areas of thermochemistry, electrochemistry, and photochemistry [29].

He has been examining how these inputs could be removed through mechanochemistry, which would transform the solution-based process of building zeolitic frameworks into one that relies primarily on solid-state interaction of components during mixing.
