The colored TaON and Ta3N5 were synthesized by ammonolysis of amorphous Ta(OH)5 in the temperature range of 800-1000°C. Ta(OH)5 were prepared by titration process from TaCl5. TaON were synthesized at 900°C for 2 hr, and Ta3N5 were synthesized at 1000°C for 5 hr. In general, Ta3N5 powders were easily oxidized at 500°C with changing colority from red to white. To minimize the oxidation problem of Ta3N5 powders, we proposed silica coated system using TEOS and APTES as a surfactant. Tonality of silica coated Ta3N5 has very little changing which means silica coating actually minimizes the oxidation of the Ta3N5 particles.
