Local structural changes that accompany amorphization during the decomposition of LiAl(ND2)4 were investigated by neutron total scattering measurements. Structure factors before the decomposition were attributed to single-phase LiAl(ND2)4 characterized by isolated [ND2] units. Atomic pair distribution functions after heat treatments at 433 and 673 K showed that LiAl(ND2)4 decomposed to amorphous mixed phases that contain Li3AlN2 and AlN.
