Nd 2 O 3 -Co 3 O 4 mixed oxide preforms were used to produce NdCo 5 intermetallic compound via the FFC Cambridge Process. Constant voltages were applied between a mixed oxide precursor cathode and graphite anode in molten calcium chloride at 950°C SEM and XRD were used to characterise the material before and after the electro-deoxidation. The result obtained after the electrochemical reduction confirm the possibility of producing NdCo 5 and magnetic intermetallics using the FFC-Cambridge process.
