An Al0.5TiZrPdCuNi high-entropy (H-E) alloy with a bcc single phase was found through a Ti20Zr20Pd20Cu 20Ni20 H-E glassy alloy designed based on equi-atomicity inherent to H-E alloys. The constituent elements and the composition of the Ti20Zr20Pd20Cu20Ni20 alloy were determined by regarding a binary Cu64Zr36 bulk metallic glass as Cu60Zr40 alloy and subsequent replacements of the Cu and Zr atoms with other late- and early-transition metals, respectively. The Ti20Zr20Pd20Cu 20Ni20 alloy in a ribbon shape forms into a glassy single phase. The addition of 0.5Al to the Ti20Zr20Pd 20Cu20Ni20 H-E glassy alloy resulted in forming a bcc single phase for a rod specimen with a diameter of 1.5 mm. The analysis revealed that the Al0.5TiZrPdCuNi H-E alloy is characterized by mixing enthalpy of -46.7 kJ·mol-1 and Delta parameter of 8.8, which are considerably larger and negative for the former and larger for the latter against the conventional H-E alloys.
