Molybdenum (often referred to as “Moly”) is an important metal in both the industrial world and our daily lives. It was found to be a distinct element by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1778 but retained its name from the Greek word ‘molybdos’ or lead-like. In its pure state, molybdenum is a lustrous grey metal, somewhat heavier than iron but melting at a much higher temperature – 4730 degrees Fahrenheit as compared with 2795 degrees Fahrenheit for iron.
|Molybdenum chemicals are used in the production of catalysts for a variety of reactions, notably hydrotreating and selective oxidation. Hydrotreating catalysts based on molybdenum are used in the desulfurization of oil prior to further refining and reforming. The increasingly stringent requirements for low sulfur fuel oils, gasoline and diesel fuel make this application a particularly important use for molybdenum. Examples of oxidation processes using molybdenum catalysts include the production of formaldehyde from methanol and acrylonitrile or propylene oxide from propylene. Stable molybdate solutions with low impurity levels can be produced from the Climax Molybdenum Company range of molybdenum oxides and molybdates.|

|Molybdate, usually in the form of Sodium Molybdate, is used as an anodic corrosion inhibitor in a number of aqueous systems, such as cooling water treatments, and automobile anti-freeze/coolant products. It is particularly effective against pitting corrosion. Molybdate inhibits corrosion of steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, brass, cadmium and solder, and is usually used synergistically with other corrosion inhibitors.|
Molybdenum compounds are used in the production of pigments generally called Molybdenum Orange, for use in paints, plastics and inks. They are preferred over simple lead chrome pigments because of reddish hue, cleanliness and striking colors. Our Chemical Grade Oxide and Sodium Molybdate are ideal raw materials for production of these pigments. White corrosion-inhibiting pigments are used as paint primers. Molybdenum compounds are also used in the production of organic toners and as a condensation catalyst for phthalocyanine pigments.
