The recrysallization process in specimens of dilute CuP and CuMn alloys was investigated to determine those orientation relationships between recrystallized grains and deformation microstructure, which favour rapid grain growth. The specimens were prepared from tensile deformed <100>-oriented single crystals. In the CuP alloy the largest recrystallized grains have near 20° <94,30,7> or 53° <73,63,25> orientation relationships to the deformation microstructure. In the CuMn alloy only the two orientation relationships 30° <73,56,39> and 48° <71,61,35> were found.
