The calorimetric and x ray analysis of the kinetics of intermediate phase formation in magnesium and copper multilayers was discussed. Three exothermic peaks were observed. The first two reactions related to growth and nucleation of Mg2Cu along the interface. The third process was due to the growth of Mg2Cu perpendicular to the original interface.
