Results of a study of the products of burning mixtures of titania and zirconia with aluminum nanopowder in air are described. It is shown that when these mixtures burn in air the TiN and ZrN phases are stabilized. According to the data of x-ray diffraction phase analysis the materials contain 55% ZrN and 24% TiN. It is most probable that the TiN and ZrN form through formation of element metals.
