How do you define it? Molybdenum Cartbide ? Molybdenum carbide is a type of transition metal carbide.
Molybdenum Carbide’s main attributes
Molybdenum Carbide or Molybdenum Carbide can be described as a grey hexagonal crystal. It exhibits high melting points and hardness. Additionally, it is stable at both thermal and mechanical temperatures and has good resistance to corrosion. Its melting point is 2692degC. Water and Lye are insoluble. It can be slightly soluble, however, in hydrofluoric, sulfuric, and nitric acids.
There are two main kinds of catalytic reactions for molybdenum caride
1. Hydrogenation hydrogenolysis reactions
2. Hydrodesulfurization HDS or hydrodenitrogenation HDN;
3. The Isomerization Reaction
4. The hydrocarbon conversion and the synthesis reaction
5. Ammonia synthesis: Application

Which are the uses of Molybdenum-Carbide?
The global consumption structure shows that molybdenum has been an ally to iron. Molybdenum is consumed in 80% of Western developed countries. Steel absorbs 30 percent of its molybdenum while stainless steel absorbs 30 percent, low-alloy steel absorbs 30 per cent, cutting and drilling tools absorb 10%, and casting steel takes 10%. The remaining 20% is used in molybdenum chemical, petroleum refining and molybdenum oil lubricants. In the United States, 75% of the molybdenum used in steel production was quite common in 1998.
Additionally, the aerospace, metal processing, electronics and other industries are seeing a rise in use of molybdenum based alloys.
1. Molybdenum alloy
The most popular molybdenum alloy, TZM-alloy has high strength and complete properties. The United States employs TZM to produce the turbine disk for its engine. It accounts for 15% in total molybdenum. There are 22 types of molybdenum, which includes TZM alloys. The country’s output of molybdenum materials and products was almost 200 tonnes in the early 1990s.
High mechanical properties of TZM or TZC molybdenum alloys make them more useful than pure molybdenum. They are also used to manufacture high-tech and mold parts. Since the early 20th century, we have successfully used them to make seamless steel pipe heads and hot perforated heads. By using powder metallurgy technology, the sintered molybdenum connector reduces consumption (50% in the as-cast condition) and extends service life 1.5-2 times.
A seamless tube of molybdenum/rhenium alloy (containing 50% Re), has outstanding performance, and can be used at temperatures near its melting point.
The advantages of molybdenum or molybdenum alloys include high strength and good thermal and electrical conductivity. This is similar to the glass used for electronic tubes. Plates, strips and foils are also used. These components are widespread in use.
2. Alloying steel elements
Together with nickel, chromium and chromium alloying elements, molybdenum is an alligator to steel. This can help reduce embrittlement which often happens in alloy steels when heat treating. American has found a solution to the lack of tungsten supplies by using molybdenum in its high-speed stainless steel. According to research, molybdenum can have twice the power of tungsten. This means that steel with 18% tungsten may be replaced by steel with 9% molybdenum. (Adding chromium, vanadium and at the same moment) It greatly reduces the steel production cost. In stainless steel, molybdenum plays a vital role in enhancing corrosion resistance, increasing high strength and improving weldability. You can clearly see that molybdenum has a significant role in iron and steel production.
