Nanocrystalline Ni50Al50−xMox (X = 0 and 5 at.%) intermetallic powders were synthesized by mechanical alloying (MA) in a planetary ball mill. Microstructural characterization and structural changes of powder particles during mechanical alloying were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results confirmed that the synthesis behavior of NiAl intermetallic depends on the milling time and Mo content. The mechanical alloyed powders have a microstructure consisting of nanometer size particles. Mo enhance has a considerable effect on the lowering of crystallite size. The TEM image showed that the Ni50Al45Mo5 nano-particles were less than 10 nm.
