Description of Molybdenum Trioxide

Molybdenum (Mo) is gray-metallic and has the third highest melting point of any element next to tungsten and tantalum. It is found in various oxidation states in minerals but does not occur naturally as a free metal. Molybdenum is well-known for its strength and stability in high-heat applications. It is often alloyed with other compounds to improve corrosion resistance and strength at high temperatures. Consequently, molybdenum is frequently used for making steel alloys, high strength alloys, and superalloys. Molybdenum compounds usually have a low solubility in water. Industrially, they are used in high-pressure and high-temperature applications such as pigments and catalysts. Molybdenum Trioxide is a light yellow powder which is soluble in excess alkali but sparingly soluble in water.
