Molybdenum Pentachloride ( MoCl5) Nanopowder General Description
A grey-black powder composed primarily of micro-sized needle crystal particles of Molybdenum pentachloride, also known as Molybdenum (V) chloride or MoCl5. While it’s perhaps best known as a research tool for the preparation of other molybdenum compounds, this isn’t the extent of its value in the lab, or outside of it. If you’d like to learn more about ordering, handling, and utilizing molybdenum pentachloride powder (molybdenum chloride, mocl5, 99%), you can contact SSNano directly.
Molybdenum Pentachloride ( MoCl5) Nanopowder Applications
  • Laboratory applications: As noted above, molybdenum pentachloride powder can be utilized to produce any number of molybdenum compounds and complex molybdenum-containing compounds for research and commercial purposes.
  • Organic synthesis: The unique traits of molybdenum pentachloride powder make it of use in any number of organic syntheses, including chlroinations, oxidative compling reactions, and deoxygenation. Generally speaking, it’s considered a good Lewis acid for Friedel-Craft reactions.
  • Metallurgy: In addition to the usages noted above, molybdenum pentachloride powder has been utilized as a brazing and soldering flux for materials such as tungsten alloys, money, and copper.
  • Specialized films: Molybdenum pentachloride has been used alongside zinc with some success to produce thin molybdenum films.
