Nanoparticle research is presently one of the the most studied branches of science with a number of applications, particularly in electronic, optical and biomedical fields.
Molybdenum is toxic in excess quantities. It occurs in various oxidation states of minerals. It has low water solubility, and hence it can be used for high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
Molybdenum nanoparticle is flammable and hence it should be carefully stored. Anticorrosive capability of stainless steel in corrosive environments can be improved by adding 1 to 4% of molybdenum nanoparticle powder to stainless steel.
