High Nb containing TiAl porous alloys were synthesised by powder metallurgy (PM). In order to reveal reaction mechanism of Nb in preparation of the porous alloys, Nb-Al diffusion reaction was investigated using diffusion couples at relatively low temperatures of 600-800°C. The porous Nb-Al diffusion layer was identified as NbAl3 phase and the thickness of diffusion layer indicated that the Nb-Al diffusion mainly occurred at 800°C. In addition, the pore diameter distribution indicated that Nb-Al diffusion also contributed to the increase in pore diameter. According to these results, the diffusion reaction model was established for high Nb containing TiAl porous alloys.
