The chemical formula of calcium nitride is Ca3N2. It is an inorganic compound that contains constituent elements Calcium (Ca) and Nitrogen (N).

This chemical is often used as a corrosion inhibitor for concrete. It is mainly added to high-performance concretes and is usually used in large quantities to increase their durability.

Moreover, it acts as a setting and hardening accelerator to speed up the development of strength in concrete. The dosage of this corrosion inhibitor depends on the client’s budget and a variety of factors such as cement type, water-to-cement ratio, cover of concrete to steel, ambient temperature and expected level of exposure to chlorides.

Calcium nitride is a solid red-brown, crystalline solid made up of calcium and nitrogen. It is produced by heating fine fibrous metallic calcium purified by distillation to 450 in a pure N2 gas stream. The metal calcium undergoes crystal transformation at this temperature, so the lattice structure becomes loose and nitride is formed.

Synthesis of calcium nitride is a common process in metal synthesis. The molten metallic calcium is sprayed into a reactor that contains a stream of nitrogen at a high temperature. The generated calcium nitride is collected in a collection unit and used for the preparation of further alloys.

Calcium nitride is a versatile compound that has many scientific applications. It is used as a catalyst in the synthesis of organic compounds, as a reagent for the production of optical and electrical materials, and as a chemical analysis reagent. It also has a range of biochemical and physiological effects that are not fully understood.
