Abstract

The hydrogenation of Li<sub>3</sub>N at low chemical potential has been studied <i>in situ</i> by time-of-flight powder neutron diffraction and the formation of a non-stoichiometric Li<sub>4−2x</sub>NH phase and Li<sub>4</sub>NH observed. The results are interpreted in terms of a model for the reaction pathway involving the production of Li<sub>4</sub>NH and Li<sub>2</sub>NH, which subsequently react together to form Li<sub>4−2x</sub>NH. Possible mechanisms for the production of Li<sub>4</sub>NH from the hydrogenation of Li<sub>3</sub>N are discus
