Properties of lithium imide Li2NH:

White, decomposes when heated. Completely hydrolyzed in water. Reacts with acids and hydrogen.


Obtaining lithium imide Li2NH:

2 Li + NH3 = Li2NH + H2 (400° С)

2 LiNH2 = Li2NH + NH3 (400—500° C)


Reactions with lithium imide LI2NH:

3 Li2NH = 2Li3N + NH3 (t>500° С).

Li2NH + ЗН2О (cold) = 2LiOH + NH3-Н2О.

Li2NH + НСl (diluted) = LiCl + NH4Cl.

Li2NH + H2 = LiNH2 + LiH (250—350° C).
