New multicomponent V-based glassy alloy powder has been synthesized by mechanical alloying a mixture of elemental V45Zr20Ni20Cu10Al2.5Pd2.5 powder at room temperature, using a low energy ball mill. The glassy powder of the end-product (720 ks) in which its glass transition temperature (Tg) lies at a rather high temperature (745 K), crystallizes through two sharp exothermic reactions at 843 K and 919 K, respectively. The total enthalpy change of crystallization (ΔHx) is −1.78 kJ/mol. The supercooled liquid region before crystallization, ΔTx of the synthesized glassy powder shows a high value (98 K) for a metallic glassy system. The reduced glass transition temperature (ratio between Tg and liquidus temperatures, Tl (TgTl)) was found to be 0.52.
