Oxides in metal

Hello,

I'm working on material transfer during hot working. My chemistry isnt to good. Could anyone explain if different oxides give different properties to different materials. Say MgO, would it give a different property to Aluminium from that it would give say Steel?

If so is there anyway I can find out what property an oxide gives as in is there like a catalog?

Thanks

Oxides will be chemically different in different alloys, but they generally have the same behavior - dispersion strengthening.

Thanks, but is it possible for oxides to make a metal brittle? Say Magnesium oxides in Al?

Sure. At some level the oxides are not beneficial but detrimental to the desirable properties, such as strength and toughness.
