I don't think NH2 exists... unless you're referring to N2H4.
I've been studying chemistry for a few months online. I'm here to learn new things, and share what I've already learned.

NH2 is a radical, it will not exist for long if it is created

That's what I meant. The molecules reacting to make ammonia constantly change so much that NH2 would be very hard to isolate. Sure, it exists, but it doesn't exist stabilly. It's highly unlikely you'll find a bottle of NH2 laying around anywhere.

Are you sure you mean .NH2 and not ammonia (NH3)?
My research: Google Scholar and Researchgate

You might be able to do it by passing an ammonia stream in a strong vacuum through a laser tuned to the energy of an N-H bond, which would allow the bond to absorb enough energy to separate into proton radicals and NH2 radicals. A second stream of radicals could be used to trap these, and the combined stream passed through a mass spec detector to see if it worked...
