The group IV, V and VI diborides exhibit poor high temperature oxidation rresistance but it appears that some third elements can significantly improve this resistance. Also, it appears other diboride s with the AlB structure can form solid solutions with the group IV, V and VI diborides and though this alloying, self protecting oxide films may form. His proposes to evaluate and model the oxidation behavior of a large group samples that are of the solid solution type as well as additions that form second phase.
