Sodium Molybdate Dihydrate
Synonyms: disodium molybdate dihydrate
CAS No.: 10102-40-6 EC No.: 231-551-7 RTECS No.: QA5075000
Molecular Weight: 241.95
Molecular Formula: Na2MoO4.2H2O
Solubility in water: 84g/100ml
By dissolving MoO3 in sodium hydroxide at 50–70°C and crystallizing the filtered product, sodium molybdate dihydrate can be obtained:
MoO3 + 2NaOH → Na2MoO4·2H2O
1) The agriculture industry uses sodium molybdate as a fertilizer. In particular, it has been suggested for treatment of whiptail in broccoliand cauliflower in molybdenum-deficient soils. However, care must be taken because at a level of 0.3 ppm sodium molybdate can cause copper deficiencies in animals, particularly cattle.
2) Sodium molybdate is used in industry as a non-oxidizing anodic corrosion inhibitor. The addition of sodium molybdate significantly reduces the nitrite requirement of fluids inhibited with nitrite-amine, and improves the corrosion protection of carboxylate salt fluids.
3) Sodium molybdate is also applied in pigments industry
