Lithium Nitride Formula

Lithium nitride (Li3N) is the only stable alkali metal nitride. It has a reddish-pink color and a high melting point. The lithium nitride is used in a variety of applications including in chemical synthesis.

It is also considered a promising hydrogen storage medium. It is used in batteries, as a cathode material, and as a reducing agent. As a reducing agent, it reacts with water to produce ammonia. Ammonia is a very toxic gas, and it can be easily ignited. In the air, it can spontaneously burn nearby combustible materials.

Lithium nitride is a fast ionic conductor, which means that it can move ions quickly. Moreover, it has a high electrochemical potential. However, it is corrosive, and can be readily oxidized by moisture in the air. Therefore, it is not suitable as a solid electrolyte in a LIB.

It has been reported to act as a cathode for an n-type dopant in Alq3 layer. Besides, it is effective as a catalyst for converting hexagonal boron nitride into cubic boron nitride.

Lithium nitride has been reported to have catalytic properties at high temperatures. These properties have been explained by an ion polarization model. Ion polarization occurs when the protons of an atom have a strong tendency to capture the anions.

A lithium nitride catalyst was found to have a reversible hydrogen absorption rate of 11.5% by weight. This was achieved by using a self-made Li3N as a catalyst. X-ray diffraction and Raman diffraction techniques were used to analyze the experimental products.
