This study reports the influence of gadolinium (Gd) addition on mechanical and corrosion properties of 2205 duplex stainless steel. In all alloys produced, regardless of the initial Gd content, Gd-based inclusions were well distributed in the duplex s stainless steel matrix. As the Gd content increased from 0 wt% to 0.19 wt%, the u ultimate tensile strength and hardness of the alloy increased from 630 MPa to 977 M MPa and from 57 to 61, respectively, while elastic modulus, tensile elongation and i impact energy of the alloy decreased. The critical crevice temperatures of Alloy1, A Alloy2 and Alloy3 were 20oC, 20oC and 15oC, respectively.
