Abstract

Transition metal carbides and nitrides have received a large amount of attention in chemistry and materials science due to their interesting properties and potential to substitute precious metal catalysts. Earth-abundant early transition metal carbides and nitrides were the primary focus of many efforts, while late transition metal alternatives are less explored. This brief review discusses recently published chemical reports that focus on the controlled synthesis of nickel nitride and its composites. The fundamental properties of nickel nitride, such as thermal, structural, and magnetic properties are examined. Furthermore, implementation of nickel nitride materials as catalysts in energy-related applications is thoroughly covered.
