Its chief application is as an oxidation catalyst and as a raw material for the production of molybdenum metal. It is a Precursor to LAMOX fast ion conductors and superconductors. Molybdenum trioxide has also been suggested as a potential anti-microbial agent, e.g., in polymers. In contact with water, it forms H+ ions that can kill bacteria effectively.
