Molybdenum-96 Information

Molybdenum is a silvery-white, hard metallic transition element. It is chemically unreactive and is not affected by most acids. It oxidizes at high temperatures. Molybdenum has 35 isotopes. There are 7 natural isotopes, 6 of them are stable. It has four metastable nuclear isomers, Mo-93 being the most stable with a half-life of 4000 years. Molybdenum is used in almost all high-strength steels, it has nuclear applications, and it is a catalyst in petroleum refining. It was discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in Sweden in 1778. Impure metal was prepared in 1781 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 alloys are used in aircraft, missiles, and protective coatings in boiler plate.
