INTERMETALLIC  COMPOUNDS

          Intermetallic compounds are generally formed when one metal (for example magnesium) has chemical properties which are strongly metallic and the other metal (for example antimony, tin or bismuth) has chemical properties which are only weakly metallic. Examples of intermetallic compounds are Mg2Sn,  Mg2Pb,  Mg3Sb2  and  Mg3Bi2 . These intermetallic compounds have higher melting point than either of the parent metal. This higher melting point indices the high strength of the chemical bond in intermetallic compounds.
