    Vanadium nitride was synthesized by the reaction of VCl4 and NaNH2 at room temperature. X-ray powder diffraction could be indexed as cubic VN with the lattice constant of a = 4.134 Å. Transmission electron microscopy image showed particle and hollow sphere morphology. The optical properties of the as-prepared VN were investigated.
