WHAT DOES INTERMETALLIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Intermetallic

Intermetallic or intermetallic compound is a term that is used in a number of different ways. Most commonly it refers to solid-state phases involving metals. There is a "research definition" adhered to generally in scientific publications, and a wider "common use" term. There is also a completely different use in coordination chemistry, where it has been used to refer to complexes containing two or more different metals. Although the term intermetallic compounds, as it applies to solid phases, has been in use for many years, its introduction was regretted, for example by Hume-Rothery in 1955. Note that many intermetallic compounds are often simply called 'alloys', although this is somewhat of a misnomer. Both are metallic phases containing more than one element, but in alloys the various elements substitute randomly for one another in the crystal structure, forming a solid solution with a range of possible compositions; in intermetallic compounds, different elements are ordered into different sites in the structure, with distinct local environments and often a well-defined, fixed stoichiometry. Complex structures with very large unit cells can be formed.
