Abstract : A study is made of the effect of the variables of temperature, partial pressure of oxygen, and alloy composition upon the selective oxidation of Mo-Hf alloys in a hydrogen atmosphere containing very low partial pressures of oxygen. Samples were selectively oxidized at two temperatures, 1200 C and 1300 C, at two partial pressures of oxygen, and at four different alloy compositions (1.0, 5.6, 15.0, and 25.0 atom percent Hf).
