Molybdenum

Molybdenum (Mo)

Molybdenum is the 42nd element in the periodic table and has a symbol of Mo and atomic number of 42. It has an atomic weight of 95.95 and a mass number of 98. Molybdenum has forty-two protons and fifty-six neutrons in its nucleus, and forty-two electrons in five shells. It is located in group six, period five and block d of the periodic table. Silvery-white, hard metallic transition element. It is chemically unreactive and is not affected by most acids. It oxidizes at high temperatures. There are seven natural isotopes, and four radioisotopes, Mo-93 being the most stable with a half-life of 3500 years. Molybdenum is used in almost all high-strength steels, it has nuclear applications, and is a catalyst in petroleum refining. Discovered in 1778 by Carl Welhelm Scheele of Sweden. Impure metal was prepared in 1782 by Peter Jacob Hjelm. The name comes from the Greek word molybdos which means lead. Trace amounts of molybdenum are required for all known forms of life. All molybdenum compounds should be considered highly toxic, and will also cause severe birth defects.

Molybdenum crystaline fragment and 1cm3 cube

History

Molybdenite was often confused for graphite and it was thought to contain lead. In 1778 Swedish scientist Carl Wilhelm Scheele proved that molybdenite was not graphite nor did it contain lead. In 1781, Scheele's friend and countryman, Peter J. Hjelm isolated the metal by using carbon and linseed oil. From the Greek word molybdo, lead

DiscoverersCarl Wilhelm Scheele
Discovery LocationSweden
Discovery Year1778
Etymology (Name Origin)Greek: molybdos (lead).
Pronunciationmeh-LIB-deh-nem (English)
Molybdenum is toxic in all but small quantities
Molybdenum is essential for plant foliage health

Uses

Molybdenum is used as glass furnace electrodes due to its high melting point. The metal is also used in nuclear energy applications and for missile and aircraft parts. Molybdenum is valuable as a catalyst in the refining of petroleum. Molybdenum is used in small quantities to harden steel and is used in many alloys. Its alloys are used in aircraft, missiles, and protective coatings in boiler plate.

Sources

Found in the minerals molybdenite (MoS2) and wulfenite (MoO4Pb).
