The effects of carbon/oxygen concentrations in Ti-51 at.% Ni on the morphology and phase changes of inclusions in a commercial wire manufacturing process were investigated. Whereas cast material fabricated with a carbon to oxygen mass concentration ratio (C/O ratio) of 1.0–1.5 were found to contain single-phase Ti(C,O), when hot working was performed, some of the Ti(C,O) exhibited a phase change to Ti2Ni(O), and a mixed phase structure was found in specimens with a C/O ratio of less than 1.5. On the other hand, single-phase Ti(C,O) was found to remain in the wire produced from the specimens with a C/O ratio of 1.5.
