Equilibria involving the isomers AlNC and AlCN above a mixture of aluminum nitride, graphite, and gold contained in a graphite Knudsen cell were investigated with a mass spectrometer. The enthalpies of formation,ΔfHo0, and of atomization, ΔaHo0, in kJ mol−1, for AlNC and AlCN, were derived as 281.3±14 and 303.8±14, and as 1228.1±15 and 1205.6±15, respectively.
