    Titanium nitride hollow spheres were synthesized by the reaction of TiCl 4 and NaNH 2 at room temperature. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) pattern could be indexed as cubic TiN with the lattice constants of a = 4.236 Å. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images showed hollow spheres with diameter about 200 nm. A possible formation mechanism of TiN hollow spheres was discussed.
