In this paper, orthorhombic phase zirconium monosilicide nanomaterials have been successfully synthesized through a lithium thermal reduction in a stainless-steel autoclave at a low temperature of 600 0C. X-ray diffraction indicates that the obtained product is orthorhombic zirconium monosilicide. Scanning electron microscopy shows that the obtained zirconium monosilicide product consists of nanoparticles and nanorods. The oxidation resistance of the obtained zirconium monosilicide product is investigated.
