Optimization of mechanical alloying process for the synthesis of Mg0.33Al0.66 and Mg0.33Al0.63Si0.03 solid solution is carried out in this paper. These alloys are usually having a metastable character; we have done X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) was for both synthesized compounds. In order to characterize and verify the morphology and the particles size, only the non-substituted alloy is analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
