    We perform a systematic structural investigation of the I-phase particles embedded in Mg matrix in I-phase-reinforced Mg-3.5Zn-0.6Gd alloy and offer evidence to the presence of dislocations in the I-phase particles. Such dislocations are found to be formed on the (0001) plane of Mg matrix, which is attributed to their slipping into the 5-fold and 2-fold planes of I-phase particles. We also discuss how deformation conditions of wrought Mg alloys affect the deformation behaviors of the I-phase and how deformation behavior of I-phase affect the mechanical properties of wrought Mg alloys. The bonding between the I-phase and Mg matrix was also confirmed to be strong.
