Phase constitution and magnetic properties of Nd10Fe76B4M10 and Nd10Fe76B2M12 (M = Fe, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Co and Al) alloys prepared by mechanical alloying and subsequent annealing have been systematically studied. It is found that the components of phases in the alloys critically depend on the additive transition metals M. In all the alloys, only the addition of Ti give significant enhancement to the permanent-magnetic properties. The increase of the Curie temperature in the Ti-doped alloys with an excessively low B content implies that part of the Ti atoms may occupy crystalline sites other than the Fe sites. In all the M additive alloys, with increasing content of the additive elements, the quantity of 1:7 phase increases and that of Nd2Fe14B-type phase decreases.
