The present paper investigates the bulk metallic glass formation in Co-based alloy systems with the guidance of the cluster line and minor-alloying principles. The selected basic ternary Co-B-Si alloy compositions are intersecting points of cluster lines, defined by linking special binary clusters to the third element. Then these basic ternary alloys are further minor-alloyed with Nb and quaternary bulk metallic glasses are obtained only by 4-5 at. % Nb minor-alloying of the basic composition Co68.6B25.7Si5.7 that is developed from dense-packed cluster Co8B3. The bulk metallic glasses are expressed approximately with a unified simple composition formula: (Co8B3)1(Si,Nb)1. In addition, a quantity of Fe substitution for Co further improves the glass-forming abilities.
