Abstract: In this study, the effects of the addition of individual micro- and nano-sized metallic elements (micron-Ti and nano-Cu) and their combination on the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure Mg were investigated. The materials were produced by rapid microwave sintering assisted powder metallurgy technique followed by hot extrusion. From the microstructural characterization and mechanical property evaluation, it was identified that the solid solubility, size and the method of addition of elements significantly influenced the properties. While the insoluble micron-Ti enhanced the strength and reduced the ductility due to weak interface, the addition of nano-Cu with relative solid solubility enhanced the strength due to the formation of Mg 2Cu intermetallics and retained the ductility. The positive effect of their combined addition was found to be more pronounced when they were pre-processed, rather than their direct addition. The change in particle morphology, Ti 3Cu intermetallic formation and good interfacial bonding with the matrix achieved due to pre-processing contributed towards its superior strength and ductility. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
