A new solid-state reaction to form metal nitrides has been investigated. It was confirmed that single phase chromium nitride is formed by a solid-state diffusion reaction between iron nitride and chromium chloride powders at temperatures between 570-700°C. The discovered reaction can be applied to form chromium nitride coatings on tool steels for metal forming applications.
