molybdenum trioxide

[mə′lib·də·nəm trī′äk‚sīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
MoO3 A white solid at room temperature, with a melting point of 795°C; soluble in concentrated mixtures of nitric and sulfuric acids and nitric and hydrochloric acids; used as a corrosion inhibitor, in enamels and ceramic glazes, in medicine and agriculture, and as a catalyst in the petroleum industry.

They suggested that the acidity of the solution was a determining factor controlling the solubility of molybdenum trioxide under hydrothermal conditions and assumed that monomeric forms [H.sub.2]Mo[O.sub.4.sup.0], HMo[O.sub.4.sup.-], and Mo[O.sub.4.sup.2-] are produced by the dissolution of Mo[O.sub.3].
