Calcium Nitride Properties

What is Calcium Nitride Ca3N2 powder

The calcium Nitride formula is Ca3N2. In most cases, calcium nitride is usually available in large volumes. TRUNNANO provides a wide range of products for hydrogen storage research, advanced fuel cells, and battery applications. Hydrogen is easily produced from renewable energy sources and is the most abundant element in the universe. Hydrogen comes from many sources, such as solid fuels, water, and renewable materials. Hydrogen is non-polluting and will form harmless water during use. Challenges related to using hydrogen as an energy source include developing safe, compact, reliable, and cost-effective hydrogen storage and transmission technology. Currently, hydrogen can be stored in three forms: compressed hydrogen, liquid hydrogen, and chemical storage. High purity, submicron, and Nanopowder forms can be considered.


Calcium nitride is the main raw material for high-end phosphors. This phosphor is more stable, performs better, and has better effects at high temperatures and humidity. Last but not least, calcium nitride can also be used as a chemical treatment agent, which is the key to determining the performance of water-based mud.

How is Calcium Nitride Produced?

When calcium burns in the air, it forms Ca3N2 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.

Depending on the preparation temperature, the obtained calcium nitride is black at 350°C, milky white at 350 to 1150°C, or golden yellow at 1150°C or higher. Identifying the calcium nitride formed is easy because it can react with moisture or water and produce calcium hydroxide and ammonia.


Product Performance of Calcium Nitride Ca3N2 powder:

Calcium Nitride Ca3N2 powder possesses the characteristics of high purity and uniform particle size distribution. 


Calcium nitride is insoluble in water and alkali at room temperature but soluble in acid. As an important nitride, calcium nitride has various physical and chemical properties. Its density is 2.71g/cm3, the melting point is about 2200℃, and it has good thermal conductivity and high-temperature resistance. The crystal structure of calcium nitride is hexagonal, and the space group is P63/mmc. In the lattice, calcium atoms are located in the center of a regular octahedron made of N atoms, forming Ca-N covalent bonds. This structure gives calcium nitride a high melting point and hardness. Calcium nitride has a variety of applications, the most important of which is as a nitrogen source and additive.

Application of Calcium Nitride Ca3N2 powder:

Calcium nitride Ca3N2 powder is the main raw material of chemical reagents and high-end fluorescent powder.

Calcium nitride has a variety of applications, the most important of which are as a nitrogen source and as an additive. The most important applications are as a nitrogen source and as an additive. The applications of calcium nitride in these two areas are described below.

As a nitrogen source

Calcium nitride is an excellent nitrogen source, which can be used in high-temperature alloys, carbon nanotubes, and high-temperature ceramics. In these applications, calcium nitride can be added to materials as an additive to provide the right amount of nitrogen to improve material properties. For example, adding calcium nitride to high-temperature alloys improves the strength and toughness of the materials; adding calcium nitride to carbon nanotubes improves their structure and properties; and adding calcium nitride to high-temperature ceramics improves the density and strength of the ceramic materials.

In addition, calcium nitride can be used as a raw material for synthesizing other nitrogen-containing compounds. For example, it can synthesize nitride ceramic materials such as silicon nitride and boron nitride.

As an additive

Calcium nitride can also be used as an additive applied in rubber, plastics, and coatings. In rubber products, adding calcium nitride can improve the mechanical properties and aging resistance of rubber; in plastics, adding calcium nitride can improve the flame retardant properties of plastics; in coatings, adding calcium nitride can improve the abrasion resistance and weather ability of coatings.

In addition, calcium nitride can also be used as an analytical reagent for detecting trace elements, chemical analysis, and other experimental operations.
