Abstract Scope Transition metal nitrides (TMNs) are generally characterized with high hardness, oxidation resistance, and relatively high melting points. Among many TMNs, we study Ti$_{1-x-y}$Al$_x$Zr$_y$N alloys which are inherently unstable for a wide range of composition and temperature and transform continuously into base cubic nitride compounds i.e. AlN, TiN, and ZrN. Also, during later stages of evolution, the c-AlN transforms to w-AlN. This transition is associated with strain localization in the form of the lattice misfit between wurtzite and rock salt phases. We have developed a phase-field model to study the nanostructure of these metastable TMNs under elasto-chemical conditions and we have further looked at the inertial roots of the AlN cubic to wurtzite transition at strain space. Results will be Presented (i) on the elasto-chemical interactions in the nanostructure, and (ii) on the tendency of the cubic to wurtzite transition in composition space along with experimental data where possible.
