What is Molybdenum Carbide?
CAS Number: 12069-89-5
Melting point: 2692℃
Crystal Structure: Hexagonal
Molybdenum Carbide (Mo2C) is a hexagonal lattice, also a face-centered cubic lattice. It shows a higher melting point and high hardness, good thermal stability and mechanical stability, excellent corrosion resistance.
What are the Molybdenum Carbide 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 resistance. 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 reactions, like dehydrogenation of hydrocarbons, hydrogenolysis, and isomerization. It's comparable with platinum and iridium, known as the "quasi-platinum catalyst."
At the same time, its low price compared to the precious metal, excellent resistance to sulfur poisoning, leads to 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.
