Molybdenum Carbide (Mo2C) is a hexagonal lattice, also face-centered cubic lattice. It shows a higher melting point and high hardness, good thermal stability and mechanical stability, excellent corrosion resistance.
Applications: molybdenum carbide powder can be used as a coating material (Molybdenum Carbide (Mo2C) Evaporation Materials), can also be used as the added material, widely used in various high temperature, abrasion and chemical resistant. Molybdenum carbide is usually used as a coating material with its high hardness , abrasion resistance and high temperature resistance properties. Molybdenum carbide can also be added to the cermet to improve its performance and also often used in enhanced phase alloy.
Molybdenum carbide shows catalyst activity in some chemical reaction, like dehydrogenation of hydrocarbons, hydrogenolysis and isomerization. It's comparable with the platinum and iridium, known as "quasi-platinum catalyst."
At the same time, its low price compared to the precious metal, excellent resistance to sulfur poisoning, leads its broad application prospects in the area of the catalyst. Molybdenum carbide as an excellent catalyst material must have a high specific surface area. Micro molybdenum carbide will be a good option for this application.
