Composites of nanoparticles of lead were prepared by embedding into Al-Cu-V and Al-Cu-Fe icosahedral, and Al-Cu-Co decagonal phase alloys by means of rapid solidification. The microstructure of these composites, the orientation relationships and the interfaces formed between the particles and the matrix has been studied by transmission electron microscopy. The melting and solidification behaviour of the lead particles in these matrices has been studied by differential scanning calorimetry. The microstructure and the nature of the particle-matrix interface has been related to the melting/solidification behaviour of the particles in the matrix.
