Lanthanum Nitride

Lanthanum nitride is black crystalline power of NaCl type structure. It belong to cubic system and a=5.275*10-10m. It is soluble in acid and react with alkali to hydrolyze and form oxide. LaN easily decompose at  moisture air. Lanthanum chloride, lanthanum oxide or lanthanum metal is the raw material. Its production method is same to cerium nitride.
