  • Abstract: Abstract Recently ammonia has emerged as a potential hydrogen storage material because it contains 17.8 wt% hydrogen. Here, we propose a new synthesis route of ammonia production using hydrolysis of nitrides, which is based on the conversion technique using thermal energy, solar heat or exhaust heat to form NH3directly. Lithium metal has been tested as a starting material for the above purpose. We present the detailed results on room temperature nitridation of lithium metal, it is found that the nitridation properties are strongly affected by the surface state of lithium metal. The ammonia synthesis via hydrolysis of lithium nitride succeeds and it is strongly dependent on the reaction rate and temperature.

A new method for NH3synthesis has been proposed using hydrolysis of nitride. It is established that NH3synthesis is strongly dependent on the reaction rate and temperature.
