Rhodium has a higher melting point, greater specific strength and better oxidation resistance than most of the refractory and platinum group metals but, to date, neither rhodium nor its alloys have found wide application as structural materials. During a recent study of rhodium alloys a vast amount of data was collected, and a selection of this information is recorded here. An investigation of the mechanical properties of some of these alloys indicates that a number of them could be useful for specific applications that take place under arduous conditions.
