    The synthesis of SmCo5 by the chemical reduction of Sm2O3 during mechanical alloying has been investigated using x-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and magnetic measurements. The mechanical alloying of Sm2O3 with Co and Ca resulted in the formation of CaO and an amorphous Sm-Co phase. The SmCo5 phase formed during subsequent heat treatment exhibited coercivity greater than 33 kOe.
