A TiB2-TiCxN1-x quasi-binary eutectic composite, with a rod-like faceted texture and a long-range ordered structure of Ti-B-C-N, was prepared by the arc-melting of TiB2, TiC, and TiN powders. Hexagonal single-crystalline TiCxN1-x rods were grown in a single-crystalline TiB2 matrix with a crystal orientation relationship of TiB2 (112̄0)//TiCxN1-x (2̄02) and TiB2 [0001]//TiCxN1-x [111]. A long-range ordered structure of Ti-B-C-N was formed by the intermixing of the coherent interplanar spacings of seven TiB2 (0001) and nine TiC xN1-x (111) planes.
