Low-neodymium Nd15-xFe77-2xB8+3x powders were prepared by a mechanical alloying process using commercial Nd-Fe-B and Fe-B ingots as starting materials. Several iron boride phases, including Fe3B, Fe2B, and FeB, were observed to coexist with the Nd2Fe14B phase for the low-Nd compositions. Different process parameters are required to prepare low-Nd powders with optimum coercivity and microstructure. Coercivity of 10.5 to 4.5 kOe was obtained for x=0.0 to 4.5. The squareness ratio is close to an isotropic value of 0.5 for the studied compositions, indicating the interaction between nanoscale Nd2Fe14B and iron boride phases is not strong
