KNH2–KH: a metal amide–hydride solid solution


We report for the first time the formation of a metal amide–hydride solid solution. The dissolution of KH into KNH2 leads to an anionic substitution, which decreases the interaction among NH2− ions. The rotational properties of the high temperature polymorphs of KNH2 are thereby retained down to room temperature.
