Global Molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 powder market trend 2022-2028 Physicochemical properties and application of molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 by Newscupcakemadrid

Diamonds are forever, Gold is precious but which is rarer? Gold is a heavy metal formed during the collision of neutron stars and is one of the rarest elements on Earth.During the formation of the earth, heavy elements gradually accumulated towards the core under the influence of the earth's gravitational force. This means that the closer you get to the Earth's crust, the harder it is to find large quantities of gold.The average concentration of gold in Earth's crust is "very, very low" at just 4 parts per billion. Gold concentrations need to be 1,250 times that level to form a market-worthy deposit.
Diamond is a common element - the Molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 powder is undoubtedly a good investment opportunity.

Molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 powder overview

Molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 powder  is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula MoSi2, which is a gray metallic solid. Insoluble in most acids, but soluble in nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid. The radii of the two kinds of atoms are not much different, the electronegativity is relatively close, and they have properties similar to those of metals and ceramics. Molybdenum disilicide is conductive and can form a passivation layer of silicon dioxide on the surface at high temperatures to prevent further oxidation. It is used in high-temperature anti-oxidation coating materials, electric heating elements, integrated electrode films, structural materials, reinforcing agents for composite materials, wear-resistant materials, and connecting materials for structural ceramics.

Physicochemical properties of molybdenum disilicide MoSi2

Molybdenum disilicide MoSi2 is an intermediate phase with the highest silicon content in the Mo-Si binary alloy system, and it is a Dalton-type intermetallic compound with a fixed composition. With the dual characteristics of metal and ceramics, it is a high-temperature material with excellent performance. Very good high temperature oxidation resistance, the oxidation resistance temperature is as high as 1600℃, which is equivalent to SiC; moderate density (6.24g/cm3); low thermal expansion coefficient (8.1×10-6K-1); good electrical and thermal conductivity Properties; higher brittle-to-ductile transition temperature (1000℃) below has ceramic-like hardness and brittleness. It is metal-like soft plasticity above 1000°C. MoSi is mainly used as heating elements, integrated circuits, high-temperature anti-oxidation coatings and high-temperature structural materials.

In MoSi2, molybdenum and silicon are connected by metal bonds, and silicon and silicon are connected by covalent bonds. Molybdenum disilicide is a gray tetragonal crystal. It is insoluble in general mineral acids (including aqua regia), but soluble in a mixed acid of nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid. It has good high temperature oxidation resistance and can be used as a heating element working in high temperature (<1700°C) oxidizing atmosphere.

In an oxidizing atmosphere, a protective film is formed on the surface of the dense quartz glass (SiO2) that burns at a high temperature to prevent continuous oxidation of molybdenum disilicide. When the temperature of the heating element is higher than 1700°C, a SiO2 protective film is formed, which fuses at a melting point of 1710°C, and merges with SiO2 into a molten drop. Because of the action of its surface extension, it loses its protective ability. Under the action of the oxidant, when the element is used continuously, it forms a protective film again. It should be noted that due to the strong oxidation at low temperatures, this element cannot be used for a long time in a temperature environment of 400-700°C.
