Is it possible to add nitrogen (N) to Barium Carbonate/Witherite
(BaCO3) to make BaCO3N?
There are a couple of problems. You treat nitrogen as (N) -- atomic
nitrogen. That forms only under very high temperature. The almost universal
composition of nitrogen is "dinitrogen" (N2). The bonding in the desired
product is not clear. Just what is its structure?
