In this study, pure powders such as molybdenum, silicon, aluminum and titanium carbide were utilized to produce MoSi2 compound, MoSi2 /20 Vol % TiC composite, MoSi2-x Al alloyed compound and MoSi2-x Al/20 Vol % TiC alloyed composite. The initial powders were mixed in specified ratios, and then, were activated by mechanical milling. Milled powders were compacted, synthesized and sintered in the temperature range of 1100 -1400 oC. SEM was used to investigate the microstructural change and XRD for identification of phases. Effect of aluminum addition on phase formation was investigated. Addition of aluminum by over 9 atomic percent resulted in the formation of Mo(Si,Al)2 in alloyed matrix.
