NEET - 2016

The product obtained as a result of a reaction of nitrogen with CaC2 is:

(a) CaCN          (b) CaCN3          (c) Ca2CN            (d) CaCN2

(d) When calcium carbide (CaC2) reacts with nitrogen (N2) under high temperature, it forms calcium cyanamide which is also called nitrolim.

 CaC2 + N2 temperatureHigh CaCN2           +          C

                                 Calcium cyanamide

Hence, option (d) should be CaCN2 instead of Ca(CN)2
