The unidirectional solidification of liquid alloys that undergo a peritectic reaction is discussed and a prediction of the micro-morphology resulting from the solidification process is given. Experimental results substantiate the prediction. Dendrites of the higher melting point phase are found in a matrix of the lower melting point phase in all alloys within the range of compositions of the peritectic horizontal.
