About Magnesium Nitride:
Magnesium nitride with CAS 12057-71-5, which possesses the chemical formula Mg3N2, is an inorganic compound of magnesium and nitrogen. At room temperature and pressure it is a greenish yellow powder.
Specifications and properties of Magnesium Nitride:
|Molar mass：||100.9494 g/mol|
|Appearance：||greenish yellow powder|
|Melting point：||approx. 1500°C|
Application of Magnesium Nitride:
Magnesium nitride was the catalyst in the first practical synthesis of borazon (cubic boron nitride).
Robert H. Wentorf, Jr. was trying to convert the hexagonal form of boron nitride into the cubic form by a combination of heat, pressure, and a catalyst. He had already tried all the logical catalysts (for instance, those that catalyze the synthesis of diamond), but with no success.
Out of desperation and curiosity (he called it the "make the maximum number of mistakes" approach), he added some magnesium wire to the hexagonal boron nitride and gave it the same pressure and heat treatment. When he examined the wire under a microscope, he found tiny dark lumps clinging to it. These lumps could scratch a polished block of boron carbide, something only diamond was known to do.
From the smell of ammonia, caused by the reaction of magnesium nitride with the moisture in the air, he deduced that the magnesium metal had reacted with the boron nitride to form magnesium nitride, which was the true catalyst.
When isolating argon, William Ramsay passed dry air over copper to remove oxygen and over magnesium to remove the nitrogen, forming magnesium nitride.
Storage Condition of Magnesium Nitride Powder:
Damp reunion will affect Magnesium Nitride powder dispersion performance and using effects, therefore,Magnesium Nitride Powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in cool and dry room, the Magnesium Nitride Powder can not be exposure to air. In addition, the Magnesium Nitride powder should be avoided under stress.
