    C+N2 (@ hight T)--> ?

    Hi all,

    I wonder if carbon (from graphene sheets) and nitrogen gas (from a compressed cylinder) can react at high temperatures?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes carbon nitrides exist, but that link doesn't say anything about them forming in the manner described by the OP. I'm doubtful you would see any nitride formation at any reasonable pressures/temperatures. You don't see any nitride formation on graphite crucibles when heated to 1000-2000 C in air.
