The formation and stability of aluminum oxynitride (Alon) under various circumstances are described using Ellingham and activity diagrams. With the help of these diagrams, the connection between seemingly uncorrelated exptl. observations on the stability of Alon from the literature can be understood. Thermodn. data sets for Alon are crit. reviewed. Alon is stable only within a small region of oxygen and nitrogen pressures, and it is not stable at
