The phase transformation process of a 25 mol% Fe2O3-Al2O3 powder mixture during high-energy ball milling has been studied by x-ray diffraction and Mossbauer spectroscopy. A metastable solid solution of 25 mol % Fe2O3 in Al2O3 with corundum structure has successfully been prepared after a milling time of 122 h. This demonstrates that the high-energy ball milling technique is able to prepare metastable solid solutions with an extended range of compositions in ceramic/ceramic systems with a positive hear of mixing.
