About Beryllium Nitride Be3N2 Powder:
Beryllium nitride, chemical formula Be3N2, is the nitride of beryllium.
What is the compound name for Be3N2? 
Beryllium nitride. (Be3N2)Unlike beryllium azide or Ben6, it breaks down into beryllium and nitrogen in a vacuum. It is easy to decompose to form hydroxide and ammonia. Cubic α-Be3N2 and hexagonal β-Be3N2 have two polymorphic forms with defective antifluorite structures. It reacts with silicon nitride and silicon nitride in an ammonia flow at 1800-1900°C to form BeSin2.
Does beryllium react with nitrogen? 
Beryllium react with nitrogen to produce beryllium nitride. This reaction takes place at a temperature of 700-900°C.
Is Be3N2 ionic or covalent? 
Accordingly, this electron distribution analysis suggests that Be3N2 monolayer is a honeycomb structure consisting of a six-ring structure consisting of N-Be-N covalent bonds. By calculating the energy band structure of the Be3N2 monolayer, We studied its electrical properties.
Beryllium nitride (Be3N2) is a compound of beryllium and nitrogen prepared by heating beryllium metal powder with dry nitrogen at high temperatures (1100-1500°C). It is relatively reactive, rapidly oxidizes in the air at 600 ° C and is decomposed by water.
Beryllium nitrite is a fine white crystal with stable α-Be3N2, which is a bore-centered cubic crystal. It can be converted into a high-temperature β-Be3N2 (hexagonal system) when heated to 1400℃. It does not change in the air and is rapidly oxidized when heated to 600℃. Ammonia is released in contact with water, promoting hydrolysis in acidic or alkaline aqueous solutions.

How is Beryllium Nitride Be3N2 Powder produced?
Beryllium nitride is prepared by heating a beryllium metal powder with dry nitrogen in an oxygen-free atmosphere at temperatures from 700 ° C to 1400 ° C.
The metal beryllium is prepared by heating in an ammonia stream, which has an easy reaction and high yield.
3 be + 2 nh3 = Be3N2 + 3 h2
The metal beryllium was crushed in a steel mortar and sieved (1600 Wells /cm2 sieve), placed in a corundum boat, and dried ammonia gas was inserted into a porcelain tube and heated at 850℃ for 3h. The sample is then ground into a fine powder in an agate mortar and heated to 1000 ° C in an ammonia stream. After repeated operation three times, beryllium nitride Be3N2 with a purity of 94% ~ 95% can be obtained.
Applications of Beryllium Nitride Be3N2 Powder:
What is beryllium nitride used for? 
Beryllium nitride is used in refractory ceramics as well as in nuclear reactors and to produce radioactive carbon-14 for tracer applications.
Beryllium nitride is used in refractory ceramics as well as in nuclear reactors and in the production of radiocarbon -14 for tracer applications.
Beryllium nitride reacts with inorganic acids to produce ammonia and the corresponding acid salts:
Be3n2 + 6 HCl→3 BeCl2 + 2 NH3
In strong alkali solutions, beryllium salts are formed with the precipitation of ammonia:
Be3n2 + 6NaOH →3Na2BeO2 + 2NH3
Both acid and base reactions are vigorous. However, the reaction with water is very slow:
3N2 + 6H2O→3Be (OH)2 + 2NH3
The reaction with the oxidant is likely to be violent. It is oxidized when heated in the air at 600°C
