Lithium Nitride is chemical compound having the formula Li3N. This is a stable alkali metal nitride, available in a red or purple color with high melting point. It is prepared via the direct accumulation of primary lithium with nitrogen gas.

Reactivity Profile:

This is a strong basic reducing agent, which is incompatible with oxidizing agents such as atmospheric oxygen. Violently uncongenial with acids, especially oxidizing acids, it makes a violent reaction with copper(I) chloride so as to make metallic copper. Lithium Nitride acts exothermically with silicon tetrafluoride and can lead to explosion.
