The results of a study on the production of cubic titanium carbide in direct-current arc discharge plasma initiated in open air are presented. A feature of the method is its implementation without the use of gas or liquid protective media preventing the oxidation of products and initial reagents with air oxygen. According to the X-ray diffraction data, graphite gC, hexagonal titanium α-Ti, and cubic titanium carbide TiC are identified in the composition of the powder product. The TiC particles are represented by objects with a regular characteristic cut and sizes from units to tens of micrometers.
