Molybdenum Carbide Powder

Molybdenum (atomic symbol: Mo, atomic number: 42) is an element of Block D, Group 6, Period 5 with an atomic weight of 95.96. Bohr Molybdenum Model The number of electrons in each of the molybdenum shells is and its electronic configuration is [Kr] 4d5 5s1. The molybdenum atom has a radius of 139 μm and a Van der Waals radius of 209 μm. In its elemental form, molybdenum has a metallic gray appearance. Molybdenum was discovered by Carl Wilhelm in 1778 and isolated for the first time by Peter Jacob Hjelm in 1781. Molybdenum is the 54th most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Elemental molybdenum has the third-highest melting point of any element, surpassed only by tungsten and tantalum. Molybdenum is not naturally found as the free metal but is found in several oxidation states in minerals. Molybdenite is the main commercial source of molybdenum, although it is also recovered as a by-product of copper and tungsten extraction. The origin of the name molybdenum comes from the Greek word molubdos which means lead.
