Molybdic acid, MoO3 85% min


Chemical Properties

Soluble in dilute ammonium hydroxide, alkali and ammonia. Slightly soluble in water.


Molybdic acid is used as a precursor in the production of ammonium molybdate tetrahydrate and molybdenum(IV) sulfide. The mixture of molybdic acid in concentrated sulfuric acid is called as Froehde reagent, which finds application in analytical chemistry for the detection of alkaloids.


Incompatible with strong bases and strong oxidizing agents.
