We demonstrate a simple electrochemical method suitable for preparing precursors for nine different metal-nitride ceramics. These precursor powders were calcined in flowing NH3 or Ar to yield metal-nitride ceramic powders. This electrochemical synthetic technique was applied to Al, Ga, Mo, Nb, Ni, Ti, V, W, and Zr and resulted in a nitride of each of these metals. The calcination conditions determined the resulting phase, composition, and morphology of the product. The ceramic materials were characterized primarily by powder XRD.
