Amorphous steels are promising materials with potential structural applications. The glass-forming ability (GFA) and mechanical properties of metallic glasses are intimately related to the local structure. In Fe-based alloys, Cr andMocontentseemto play a key role in stabilizing the amorphous atomic-level structure. Here we present a study on the effects of changing Mo content in Fe72−xC7Si3.3B5.5P8.7Cr2.3Al2Mox amorphous steels.Westudy the local structure of these alloys by Synchrotron X-ray diffraction and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The results show how the amorphous phase evolves from a ferromagnetic Fe-rich structure to a structure with predominance of paramagnetic environments with the increase of Mo content. The changes in the distribution of magnetic environments cannot be attributed only to the Fe–Mo substitution but to a change of local configuration in the amorphous phase.
