The ternary compound Ti3Al1-xN2 was found to be stable between ∼1523 and 1673 K and tended to be deficient in aluminum where 0.0 < x < 0.3. X-ray diffraction indicated that the ternary compound possessed a hexagonal structure with unit-cell dimensions of a0 = 2.990 Å and c0 = 23.3854 A. The existence of the compound "Ti3Al2N2" that had been reported previously could not be confirmed for any experimental conditions at 1 atm pressure.
