Does zinc react with nitrogen ? Is this reaction possible:

3Zn + N2 → Zn3N2

Or maybe there are another reaction?

Wikipedia gives several synthetic routes to zinc nitride. One of these routes is electrical discharge between zinc electrodes in a nitrogen atmosphere. Synthesis without electrical discharge generally uses ammonia as the ultimate nitrogen source.
