Sodium nitride (Na3N) is an extremely labile alkali metal nitride. It was synthesized by Dieter Fischer and Martin Jansen from the Max Planck institute for Solid-State Research in 2002 using a special technique involving atomic beams of sodium and nitrogen deposited onto a low-temperature sapphire substrate.

Sodium nitride is a crystalline solid at room temperatures. It forms an amorphous solid below room temperature, and decomposes into its elements at the temperature of 87 degrees Celsius.
