Lithium Nitride Properties

What is Lithium Nitride Li3N Powder:

Li3N compound name is lithium nitride or trilithium nitride. Lithium nitride is a fast ionic conductor, and its conductivity is higher than other inorganic lithium salts. Many studies have focused on applying lithium nitride compound as a solid electrode and battery cathode material.

What is the correct name for Li3N?

Lithium nitride is the correct name for Li3N, which means that the lithium nitride formula is Li3N.

It should have a higher decomposition voltage, lower electronic and ionic conductivity, and better chemical stability as a fast-ion conductor material.

Does lithium nitride burn in the air?

Lithium is unique in the Group because it also reacts with the nitrogen in the air to form lithium nitride. Lithium burns with a strongly red-tinged flame if heated in the air. For the record, it also reacts with the nitrogen in the air to give lithium nitride. Many lithium fast-ion conductors have the above characteristics. They can manufacture all-solid-state batteries with excellent performance as the power source for calculators, camera flashes, electronic watches, and more and more electronic equipment and products; they can also be used to manufacture special Ion equipment.

What type of bond is lithium nitride?

Ionic bond: This is how the ionic bond forms in Lithium Nitride (Li3N).

Is Li3N ionic or covalent?

Lithium nitride is an ionic compound. The electronegativity of Li is 0.98, and nitrogen is 3.04. People have imagined using lithium fast ion conductor materials to build large energy storage (electric) reactors. When the peak hours of electricity consumption in big cities are late at night, the excess electricity can be changed into energy storage stations. During the peak power consumption period, continuously supply power to the grid. People have aroused great interest because of the broad application prospects of lithium fixed ion conductors. People have conducted extensive and in-depth research to find better lithium-fixed ion conductors.

How is Lithium Nitride Li3N Powder Produced?

Lithium nitride was first discovered at the end of the 19th century and can be easily prepared by combining elements. In 1935, Zintl and Brauer first determined the hexagonal structure of lithium nitride crystals. 2 is the charge of lithium nitride. In 1976, Rabenau and Schultz used single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) to redefine this structure.

The research on lithium nitride and hydrogen reactions began in the early 20th century. Dafert and Miklauz discovered that lithium nitride and hydrogen react at 220-250°C to form a substance with a composition of "Li3NH4". They continue to heat the substance and decompose it into "Li3NH2" components in higher temperature (> 700°C) substances and hydrogen. Later, they, together with Ruff and Georges, discovered that the "Li3NH4" was Li2NH + LiH, and the "Li3NH2" was LiNH2 + 2 LiH.

Today, lithium nitride has been used in many fields. The ion polarization model can reasonably explain the catalytic effect of Li3N under normal pressure and high temperature and its role as a nitrogen source in the solvothermal method.

Li3N prepared by reacting lithium metal with N2 at 500°C is a good catalyst for the synthesis of cBN at high temperatures and high pressure. It can also catalyze the formation of hBN under normal pressure and high temperature and can be used as a solvothermal method to synthesize hBN with a cBN nitrogen source.

Characteristics of lithium nitride

Structural features: Lithium nitride is a hexagonal crystal structure with a P63/MMC space group, and its lattice constants are a=0.527nm and c=1.586nm. Each lithium atom is coordinated with six nitrogen atoms in lithium nitride crystals to form an octahedral structure. Each nitrogen atom is also coordinated with six lithium atoms to form a tetrahedral structure.

Physical Properties: Lithium nitride is a white or slightly yellowish powder with a high melting point (about 2000°C), high density (about 2.5g/cm3), good electrical conductivity, and electrical insulation. At room temperature and pressure, lithium nitride is in solid form, insoluble in water, but, under certain conditions, can be reacted with acids and bases.Chemical properties: lithium nitride has high chemical stability, and air and water vapor are not reactive. Under high temperature and pressure, lithium nitride can react with hydrogen, ammonia, etc., to generate metal hydride and nitride.

Applications of Lithium Nitride Li3N Powder:
Lithium Nitride is a brownish-red, lump-shaped solid or a sand-like powder. It is used as a reducing agent.
What is lithium nitride used for?
Lithium nitride can be applied in different fields:

Applications of lithium nitride

High-temperature structural materials: Due to its high melting point, high density, good electrical conductivity, and stability, lithium nitride is widely used in high-temperature structural materials. For example, lithium nitride can manufacture high-temperature turbine blades, combustion chambers, and other key components in the aerospace field to improve their high-temperature resistance and service life. In addition, lithium nitride can also be used in the automotive industry to manufacture high-performance engine components to improve the power and economic performance of automobiles.

Superconducting materials: Lithium nitride has high electrical and good ionic conductivity, an important superconducting material. Lithium nitride-based superconducting materials can be prepared through appropriate preparation, such as Li0.5La0.5TiO3-xNx. These materials have potential applications in the field of high-temperature superconductivity.

Electronic materials: lithium nitride has good electrical conductivity and electrical insulation, which can be used to manufacture electronic devices and integrated circuits. For example, in integrated circuit chips, lithium nitride can be used as an insulating layer material to improve the reliability and stability of the chip. In addition, lithium nitride can also be used to manufacture high-temperature transistors, lasers, and other electronic devices.

Battery materials: Lithium nitride has high energy density and good electrochemical properties and can be used as a battery material. For example, in all-solid-state batteries, lithium nitride can be used as electrolyte material to improve the energy density and safety of the battery. In addition, lithium nitride can also be used as electrode material to manufacture high-energy density batteries, supercapacitors, and so on.

Catalyst: Lithium nitride has high activity and good selectivity and can be used as a catalyst for ammonia synthesis and other reactions. For example, in the ammonia synthesis industry, lithium nitride can be used as a catalyst precursor in conjunction with transition metals to improve the selectivity and activity of the catalyst. In addition, lithium nitride can also be used as a hydrogenation catalyst, dehydrogenation catalyst, and so on.
