Definition of intermediate constituent
A constituent of alloys that is formed when atoms of two metals combine in certain proportions to form crystals with a different structure from that of either of the metals. The proportions of the two kinds of atoms may be indicated by formula, e.g., CuZn; hence, these constituents are also known as intermetallic compounds.
