Mutual transformation between α2
phases has been an interesting topic in recent years. In this study, martensitic α2
was obtained by air-cooling from 1250 °C in Ti-37.5Al-12.5Nb (at%) alloy while four ωo
variants formed in the βo
phase matrix during the cooling process. Nonetheless, only one ωo
variant was observed at the periphery of the α2
plates in the βo
phase and the orientation relationship between these two phases was  α2
. Thin γ plates precipitated within the α2
phase and were thought to be related to the appearance of ωo
phase. The redistribution of the compositions during the phase transformations was studied by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis. The corresponding mechanisms of the phase transformations mentioned above are discussed.
