I want to ask if there's any source where I can find out the properties of different oxides, nitrides and carbides, etc.

ASM International publishes a book entitled
"Coatings and Coating Processes for Metals" [affil. link to book
on Amazon]. Many of the coatings listed are nitrides, carbides, and oxides. I would suggest you start there.
