Reactions of titanium metal powders with high-temperature high-pressure ammonia
Nitride powders as ceramic materials have been synthesized mainly by two methods: one employing the reduction of oxide powders and the succeeding nitridation with N2 and/or NH3 gases at high temperatures, and the other by the direct nitridation of metals or their hydrides. The latter method has a great affinity with the hydrothermal oxidation method, a technique for preparing fine oxide powders (20 to 35 nm) from metals, such as of zirconium , hafnium , titanium  or aluminium , by the reaction with high-temperature high-pressure water. The hydrothermal oxidation mechanism of hafnium metals has been studied in detail , and elucidated to proceed through two reaction paths: one is the direct oxidation of hafnium with high-temperature high-pressure water to form HfO2 and H2, and the other the formation of hafnium hydrides by the reaction of hafnium metals with released H2 and the succeeding oxidation of hydrides.
