Properties of calcium nitride
Calcium nitride is a compound composed of calcium and nitrogen. Its chemical formula is Ca3N2. Its appearance is a reddish-brown crystalline solid. Calcium nitride will dissolve in water when it meets with water, forming calcium and releasing ammonia. Soluble in dilute acid and decompose in alcohol. Calcium nitride is prepared by heating metallic calcium to 450°C in nitrogen.
Is calcium nitride ionic?
Since calcium nitride is an ionic compound, we can determine its molecular formula by evaluating its constituent ions. Calcium ions are 2+ ions or Ca2+. The nitride ion is 3-ion or N3-. Therefore, in order to balance the charge, 3x calcium ions, namely Ca3N2, are required for every 2x nitride ions.

Is calcium nitride a metal?
Calcium nitride is a reddish-brown crystalline solid composed of calcium and nitrogen. When calcium burns in the air, it forms Ca3N2 together with the oxide CaO. The distilled fibrous metallic calcium is heated to 450°C in a purified nitrogen stream, and then the metallic calcium is nitrided into calcium nitride after 3-4 hours.
Is calcium nitrate salt?
Calcium nitrate is produced by adding nitric acid to limestone and then adding ammonia. It is called double salt because it consists of two nutrients in fertilizers with high sodium content. This is not organic, but a modifier of artificial fertilizer.

How is calcium nitride produced?
When calcium burns in the air, it will form Ca3N2 with the oxide CaO. The distilled fibrous metallic calcium is heated to 450°C in a stream of purified nitrogen, and then the metallic calcium is nitrided into calcium nitride after 3-4 hours.
Depending on the preparation temperature, the obtained calcium nitride is black at 350°C, milky white at 350 to 1150°C, or golden yellow above 1150°C. The formed calcium nitride is easy to recognize because it can react with moisture or water and produce calcium and ammonia.

Application of Calcium Nitride
Ca3N2 can be used to obtain reactive nitride ions, and calcium (desiccant) can be produced by heating calcium nitride at a temperature higher than 350°C.
