  Molybdenum is a actinic aspect with attribute Mo and diminutive amount 42. The name is from Neo-Latin molybdaenum, fromAncient Greek Μόλυβδος molybdos, acceptation lead, back its ores were abashed with advance ores.Molybdenum slices accept been accepted throughout history, but the aspect was apparent (in the faculty of appropriate it as a new article from the mineral salts of added metals) in 1778 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele. The metal was aboriginal abandoned in 1781 by Peter Jacob Hjelm.
  Molybdenum does not action by itself as a chargeless metal on Earth; it is begin alone in assorted blaze states in minerals. The chargeless element, a ablaze metal with a gray cast, has the sixth-highest melting point of any element. It readily forms hard, abiding carbides in alloys, and for this acumen a lot of of apple assembly of the aspect (about 80%) is acclimated in animate alloys, including high-strength alloys and superalloys.
  Most molybdenum compounds accept low solubility in water, but if molybdenum-bearing minerals acquaintance oxygen and water, the consistent molybdate ion MoO2−4 is absolutely soluble. Industrially, molybdenum compounds (about 14% of apple assembly of the element) are acclimated in high-pressure and high-temperature applications as pigments and catalysts.
