Nitride formation during SHS combustion of a micron-size titanium powder and its mixtures with additives in air was studied. It was shown that the yield of TiN Ti powder was higher for SHS combustion in air than for SHS combustion of powders of the same degree of dispersion in nitrogen. The mechanism of formation of TiN is probably determined by the reaction of the intermediate product TiO with atmospheric nitrogen.
