A metastable Cr3C2−x carbide powder is prepared by carburization of a metastable chromium oxide in H2-CH4 atmosphere under the appropriate conditions (temperature, dwell time and CH4 content). A very high specific surface area (greater than 210 m2 g1) of the starting oxide is necessary to avoid the formation of the sole stable Cr3C2 phase. The transformation from the stable Cr3C2−x to the metastable Cr3C2, is observed for the first time. The driving force could be an epitaxial effect between Cr3C2−x and the surrounding graphite layer. This is consistent with the observation that the formation of graphite layers by CH4 cracking is easier in the Cr3C2−x-containing powders.
