Molybdenum
OVERVIEW
Molybdenum is a silvery-white, hard, transition metal. Scheele discovered it in 1778. It was often confused with graphite and lead ore. Molybdenum is used in alloys, electrodes and catalysts.

Molybdenum is available in many forms including: Rod, Electrode, Wire, Foil, Plate, Tube, Capillary Tubing (small tube), Target, Disk, Bolt, Fastener, Crucible and Funnel.

Molybdenum is a transition metal with an electronegativity of 1.8 on the Pauling scale and an atomic mass of 95.9 g/mole. It does not react with oxygen or water at room temperature. At elevated temperatures, molybdenum trioxide is formed in the reaction 2Mo + 3O2 ü¨ 2MoO3.

In its pure metal form, molybdenum is silvery white with a Mohs hardness of 5.5, though it is somewhat more ductile than tungsten. It has a melting point of 2623°C, and, of the naturally-occurring metals, only tantalum, osmium, rhenium, and tungsten have higher melting points. Molybdenum burns only at temperatures above 600°C. It also has the lowest heating expansion of any commercially used metal.
