Abstract: Perovskites are one of the most studied classes of materials, with applications in diverse fields of science and technology. Their basic composition is ABX3 , where X is a non-metal normally from the VIA or VIIA group. In this Article we investigate the possibility of the existence of perovskites with X=N. Our approach is based on a combination of high-throughput techniques and global structural prediction methods. We find 21 new compositions of the ABN3 form that are thermodynamically stable (considering all possible decomposition channels) and that have therefore excellent chances of being experimentally accessible. Most of these materials crystallize in monoclinic phases, but three compounds, namely LaReN3 , LaWN3 and YReN3 are likely to have distorted perovskite structures in the ground state. We believe that the addition of nitride phases to the perovskite family poses numerous questions related to the chemistry of this interesting family of compounds.
