Global Mo2C powder market trend 2022-2028 Properties and applications of Molybdenum Carbide Mo2C Powder by Newsm3lomma

OPEC+, an oil producers' alliance led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, stuck to its original plan to increase output by just 432,000 b/d in June, continuing to defy calls from major consumers led by the United States to pump more oil to keep prices down. The meeting to decide on Mo2C powder are still very uncertain.

Introduction to Molybdenum Carbide Mo2C Powder
Molybdenum carbide or Mo2C, the molecular weight is 203.88, and the carbon content is 5.89%. It is gray powder, the melting point is 2692. Insoluble in water and alkali, slightly soluble in nitric acid, sulfuric acid, and hydrofluoric acid. It has properties of high hardness, good thermal stability, mechanical stability, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. In addition, molybdenum carbide has a similar electronic structure and catalytic properties to noble metals. The main catalytic reaction types include hydro hydrolysis, isomerization, hydrodesulfurization, hydrodenitrification, ammonia synthesis, hydrocarbon conversion, and synthesis. 

Properties of Molybdenum Carbide Mo2C
Molybdenum carbide belongs to transition metal carbides, which is a group of mesenchymal compounds with metallic properties formed by carbon entering the lattice of transition metal. As a kind of new functional material with high hardness, good stability, and corrosion resistance, metal carbide has been applied in various mechanical fields with high-temperature resistance, friction resistance, and chemical corrosion resistance. In recent years, the catalytic performance of these compounds has been gradually discovered. Transition metal carbides have become a hot topic in the field of new inorganic catalytic materials because of their unique electronic structure and excellent catalytic performance. 
In terms of catalytic properties, molybdenum carbide is similar to platinum group precious metals in many aspects, especially its hydrogenation activity is similar to Pt, Pd, and other precious metals, so it is expected to be a substitute for precious metals. The results show that molybdenum carbide has good catalytic activity and selectivity for hydro refining, desulfurization, and denitrification of oil, and has the characteristics of ultra-high hardness, and excellent temperature stability, thermal stability, and good corrosion resistance to general metal carbides. In addition, molybdenum carbide has been found to have similar electronic structure and catalytic properties as noble metals, as well as good capacitance characteristics and charge-discharge behavior, which is a new catalytic material with great application prospects.

How are Carbides Formed?
Carbides are compounds consisting of carbon and less electronegative elements that are distinguished by chemical bonds (ionic, covalent). They are usually made of metals or metal oxides combined with carbon at high temperatures (1,500 °C or more).
Carbides are generally quite stable and exhibit high melting points. It can be used in critical industrial applications.
Carbides can be classified as salt-like carbides, interstitial carbides, and covalent carbides.

Applications of Molybdenum Carbide Mo2C Powder
1. For molybdenum alloy production. Molybdenum-zirconium-titanium alloy and molybdenum-titanium-zirconium-carbon alloy are widely used in electronic tubes, electric light source parts, metal processing tools, and turbine disks due to their high strength, good electrical conductivity, and low thermal expansion coefficient. 
2. As steel additives. The role of molybdenum in stainless steel is to improve the corrosion resistance, strength, and weldability of the product. 
3. As heating electrode in glass melting furnace. Molybdenum has good compatibility with most glass components and will not produce harmful substances due to small amounts of molybdenum dissolved in the glass bath.
