In the past decade, magnesium has been seen as a potential metal for weight-critical industrial applications. As magnesium is the lightest structural metal, it has higher weight saving ability when compared to aluminium. A lot of research efforts are being carried out on magnesium matrix alloys and composites in order to achieve enhanced mechanical properties. This paper provides a review on fly ash reinforced magnesium matrix syntactic foams. Fly ash cenospheres are made up of mainly alumina and silica but also contains large number of trace elements, which makes it intriguing to analyse the microstructure and interfacial responses of the foam composites. In comparison with aluminium matrix syntactic foams, the research on magnesium matrix syntactic foams is still at an incipient stage. The paper provides an insight on processing techniques, microstructural and mechanical evaluations of pure Mg, AZ and ZC alloy series and their syntactic foams. This paper also reviews the weight saving ability of magnesium matrix syntactic foams and potential scope and applications.
