Jun 04, 2021 Molybdenum is a solid, shiny, silvery metallic element that is ductile and malleable. It does not occur naturally as a free metal, but usually in an ore known as molybdenite. Molybdenum has a very high melting point, which enables it to form strong, stable carbon compounds in alloys such as steel. As a result, it is an important industrial element.
Most molybdenum compounds have low solubility in water, but when molybdenum-bearing minerals contact oxygen and water, the resulting molybdate ion MoO24 is quite soluble. Industrially, molybdenum compounds (about 14% of world production of the element) are used in high-pressure and high-temperature applications as pigments and catalysts.

May 20, 2020 Molybdenum mining, application and market development in China 1 Abstract About 80% of the globally mined molybdenum (excluding recycled molybdenum) is used as an alloying element in steel. Overall, the consumption of molybdenum in China is still lower than that in developed regions such as Europe and the United States.
Molybdenum applications are dominated by alloy steel and stainless steel. Compared with other countries, China uses lower amounts of molybdenum in superalloys, stainless steels, and alloy steels, while it uses higher amounts of molybdenum in tool steels, high-speed steels, molybdenum metals, castings, and chemicals.

Sep 05, 2019 Molybdenum Mining. Molybdenum exists in many minerals, but only molybdenite (MoS2) is suitable for the industrial production of molybdenum products. Molybdenite may be the only mineralized mineral in a single ore body, but it usually co-exists with other metals, especially copper sulfide minerals. The molybdenum content of each ore
Molybdenum was isolated by Peter Jacob Hjelm in 1781. Today, most molybdenum is obtained from molybdenite, wulfenite (PbMoO 4) and powellite (CaMoO 4). These ores typically occur in conjunction with ores of tin and tungsten. Molybdenum is also obtained as a byproduct of mining and processing tungsten and copper.
