What is Molybdenum carbide powder?

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, and are attracting extensive attention from scholars at home and abroad. In recent years, carbides, especially molybdenum carbide, as a new type of catalytic material have attracted extensive attention from researchers in chemical books. 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, excellent temperature stability, thermal stability, and good corrosion resistance of general metal carbides. In addition, molybdenum carbide has been found to have a 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.

Molybdenum carbide powder structure
The structure and electronic states of metal carbides have been studied in depth. It is generally believed that metal carbides have a gap alloy structure. In normal gap alloys, metal atoms are arranged in forms such as face-centered cubic (FCC), hexagonal dense stack (HCP), and simple hexagonal (HEX), with nonmetallic atoms entering the Spaces between the metal atoms. The most common types of gaps between metal atoms are octahedral and triangular prism. The crystal structure of metallic carbides depends on both geometrical and electronic factors. The geometrical factors can be described by Hagg's rule of thumb: when the atomic ratio of non-gold Chemicalbook and metal is below 0.59, a simple crystal structure is formed. Interestingly, although metallic carbides have simple crystal structures, few of these compounds have the same crystal structure as their parent metals. For example, molybdenum metal has a body-centered cube structure, while its stable carbides have a hexagonal compact pile structure, and carbon oxides have a face-centered cube structure. Another factor that determines the crystal structure of gap alloys is the electron factor. Bonding in these compounds results from the cooperation between the s-P orbital of the nonmetallic and the S-P-D orbital of the metal atom.
