    We investigated a new one-pot synthesis method for β-TaON oxynitride using (C6N9H3)n (melon) as a solid nitrogen source. β-TaON single phase was obtained from Ta2O5 using melon heating under a separated and sealed condition in a quartz glass tube. The oxygen and nitrogen contents of prepared β-TaON were almost 100% of the theoretical values.
