Abstract: Mg-Li matrix composites are one of the ideal structural materials in the fields of aerospace and military due to their high specific strength and stiffness, good damping and wear resistance, and small thermal expansion coefficient. The preparation technologies of Mg-Li matrix composites including powder metallurgy, pressure infiltration, stir-casting, foil metallurgy, and in-situ synthesis were introduced, and their advantages and disadvantages were compared. The common matrix alloys and reinforcements for Mg-Li matrix composites as well as the structure and performance of typical composites were mainly summarized. Then the interface chemistry between matrix and reinforcement was briefly reviewed. Finally, some problems existing at present and the possible solutions were discussed.
Key words: Mg-Li alloy; composites; preparation; reinforcement; interface chemistry
