Abstract

The high-pressure reaction of solid Ca3N2 with gold in a nitrogen atomsphere affords the ternary auride nitride Ca2AuN. In the compound, gold forms infinite, planar zigzag chains with short Au–Au bond lengths of 2.857(1) Å. The chains are sandwiched between corrugated layers of edge-sharing calcium nitride octahedra (Ca6N; see picture).
