A diffusion-controlled growth of intermettalic phases and the role of the Kirkendall effect in morphological evolution of the product phase layers can be described in terms of an alternative theory considering chemical reactions at the interphase interfaces. Application of this "physico-chemical" treatment to diffusional growth of intermediate phases with fairly wide homogeneity ranges is illustrated by the example of interaction in the Ag-Zn system. The model is purely phenomenological, and its use is convenient, since no explicit asssumption if the underlying diffusion mechanism is required.
