The pressure effect on amorphous-to-quasicrystalline-to-intermetallic phase transformations in a Zr70Pd30 metallic glass was discussed. The glass crystallized from amorphous-to-icosahedral quasicrystalline and consequently from icosahedral quasicrystalline-to-intermetallic Zr 2+xPd alloy. The intermetallic alloy exhibited a tetragonal structure with lattice parameters, a = 3.310 Å and c = 10.974 Å. The enhancement of the onset temperature for the formation of quasicrystals was also elaborated.
