Technical characteristics

Molybdenum is a silvery-white, refractory metal. It does not react with oxygen or moisture at room temperature and resistant to corrosion. It is one of the five major refractory metals (the others being tungsten, tantalum, rhenium and niobium).

Description The value
The linear thermal expansion coefficient α [1/°C] Of 4.9x10−6
Density [g/cm3] 10,2
The melting temperature t°C 2620°C
Specific heat (t° 20 °C) [kJ/(kg·deg)] 0,256
The thermal conductivity K [W/(m·K)] 142
Electrical resistivity R Омхмм2/m 0,054

Oxide MoO3 is soluble in alkalis with the formation of molybdenum salts. These salts are toxic, but despite the toxicity, molybdenum is an essential trace element for the life of living organisms, allowing to convert the nitrogen air into nitrates vital for plant growth. It is also about twenty enzymes necessary for the metabolism of animals.

Application

Stabilization process of steel hardening, alloying steels. The strength of molybdenum and its resistance to softening at high temperatures is especially in demand at a constant elevated operating temperatures (primarily nuclear power plants and aircraft engines). Molybdenum electrodes are used in the production of glass and ceramics, thanks to its high heat resistance. In the petroleum processing industry, it catalyzes the removal of organic sulfur compounds from coal combustion and liquefaction.

The molybdenum market

The price of this metal is very unstable. With the growth of imports of molybdenum concentrate in China prices increased by 43.5% compared to the record low of 10 USD per 1 kg. 1 kg costs about $ 16. Because molybdenum is mainly produced as a by-product of copper mining, the price of the metal will inevitably be unsustainable in the future. The difficulty lies in the fact that last year in North America was closed a few molybdenum mines, which along with China has supplied more than two thirds of the world’s molybdenum.
