Pyridine-based low-temperature synthesis of CoN, Ni3N and Cu3N nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

CoN, Ni3N and Cu3N nanoparticles were obtained by pyridine-based synthesis using CoI2, NiI2, and CuI as the starting materials as well as NH3/KNH2 as the base and nitride source. Colloidally stable suspensions of crystalline, small-sized CoN (4.5 ± 0.7 nm), Ni3N (2.7 ± 0.4 nm), and Cu3N (4.2 ± 0.7 nm) were instantaneously available from refluxing pyridine. This approach strictly avoids all oxygen sources (including starting materials and solvents), which is highly relevant with regard to the material purity and properties.
