Abstract:

We have extended our ambient pressure method for the synthesis of ternary alkali metal nitrides to synthesize a new class of nitrides, Na3MN3 MMo or W. These compounds were synthesized from the metal nitride and NaNH2 at 500 deg C under flowing ammonia at atmospheric pressure. The structures were examined using X-ray powder diffraction and neutron powder diffraction, and found to be identical with that obtained from single crystal prepared by Ostermann, Zachwieja and Jacobs at high pressure.
