    I’m positive that Yogini will correct me if I am mistaken on this. Iron carbide Fe3C is responsible for the stength in steel. So unless there is another compound can replace the strength in steel, Iron would need to be present.

  2. Yogini says:

    You can replace it with any other metal you want but it will not be called as steel. It is steel because it has Iron as the main metal and other alloying elements including Carbon to make it an alloy of steel. What makes it stainless steel is the addition of Chromium and Nickle.
