Among different processing routes, powder metallurgy has a large potential for development of novel high-performance materials thanks to excellent control over phase and microstructure selection, and related physical and mechanical properties. This overview describes methods and process variables employed for synthesis of advanced materials. These methods include mechanical attrition for the production of metastable materials, powder consolidation to create bulk specimens with the desired microstructure and properties, and additive manufacturing for fabrication of parts with intricate and complex geometries. Experimental data for the resulting structures obtained by powder metallurgy of single- and multi-phase materials will be described for selected materials, including nanostructured phases, quasicrystals, composites and metallic glasses, and the mechanisms responsible for phase and microstructure formation and the related properties will be discussed. Consideration of the problems and challenges for powder processing will also be addressed.
