The method of finely dispersed transition metals carbonitrides powders preparation has been elaborated. It is based on evaporation of starting powder particles in a high-frequency nitrogen plasma, its interaction with carbon and nitrogen-containing components with the following condensation of necessary carbonitride. Powders are characteristic with a some properties which are advantageous in a preparation of ceramic materials: their specific surface area is in a range from 20 to 80 m2/g, the medium size of particles is from 20 to 200 nm; often they are monocrystals with high concentration of the lattice defects, determining high activity and in some cases significantly decreased sintering temperature, for example, in a case of titanium carbonitride sintering temperature is decreased of 400–800 °.
