Barium Nitride Powder Production Process

The barium metal is placed in a nickel boat and nitrided for a long time at 560°C in a purged N2 gas stream. Or, when the absorption of nitrogen slows down, the temperature is increased to 700-750°C. After the distillation and purification of fine fibrous calcium metal in a nickel boat, in the purified N2 gas stream heated at 450 ℃ 3 ~ 4 h. Because, at this temperature calcium metal crystalline transformation (hexagonal crystal Ba → body-centered cubic Ba), the metal lattice structure becomes loose, so the nitriding reaction is fast, that is, the barium nitride.
