Molybdenum (Mo)

Density = 10.22/cm2

Melting Temp = 4,753° F

Chemical uses of Mo often go unnoticed.  A few applications include:

  • Desulfurization - Mo lowers the sulfur levels in fuels.
  • Corrosion inhibition and pigments - Mo salts effectively control corrosion in antifreeze products and water treatment systems.  They are also used in the production of inorganic pigments.
  • Smoke suppression & lubrication - Mo reduces the flammability in some polymer systems  and is used  in lubricating greases, dispersion, and bonded coatings.
  • Agriculture – used in seed treating and as a soil additive for crops, Mo increases the yield of Soybeans and other legumes.
