Molybdenum is a chemical element with symbol Mo and atomic number 42. The name is from Neo-Latin molybdaenum, from Ancient Greek molybdos, meaning lead, since its ores were confused with lead ores. Molybdenum is a refractory metal that resembles tungsten in many respects. Its hardness, melting, and boiling temperatures are only slightly lower than those of tungsten are.
Most molybdenum is used to make alloys. It is used in steel alloys to increase strength, hardness, electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion and wear. These ‘moly steel’ alloys are used in parts of engines. Other alloys are used in heating elements, drills and saw blades.

About 86% of molybdenum produced is used in metallurgy, with the rest used in chemical applications. The estimated global use is structural steel 35%, stainless steel 25%, chemicals 14%, tool & high-speed steels 9%, cast iron 6%, molybdenum elemental metal 6%, and superalloys 5%. Most high-strength steel alloys (for example, 41xx steels) contain 0.25% to 8% molybdenum.Even in these small portions, more than 43,000 tonnes of molybdenum are used each year in stainless steels, tool steels, cast irons, and high-temperature superalloys.
Other applications for Molybdenum, include as a fertilizer, as X-ray source filaments, as a lubricant, as a semiconductor and a hydrocracking catalyst. In is also used in heating elements, as an adhesive, in soda glass and thin layer chromatography.
