Ammonium dimolybdate (ADM) is a chemical compound with the formula (NH4)2Mo2O7. It appears as a white crystalline powder and is one of the more common soluble molybdenum compounds. This compound plays a crucial role in the production and application of molybdenum and its compounds.

Uses of Ammonium Dimolybdate

  1. Molybdenum Production: Ammonium dimolybdate is primarily used as an intermediate in the production of molybdenum metal. By undergoing calcination (heating at high temperatures in the presence of air or oxygen), ADM is converted into molybdenum trioxide (MoO3), which can then be further processed into metallic molybdenum or other molybdenum compounds.
  2. Catalysts: In the chemical industry, derivatives of ammonium dimolybdate are used as catalysts in the petroleum refining process. These catalysts help in the removal of sulfur and nitrogen compounds from crude oil, which enhances the quality and efficiency of fuel products.
  3. Ceramics and Pigments: ADM is used in the manufacture of ceramics and pigments. It contributes to the material properties of ceramics, such as hardness and durability, and is used in the formulation of pigments for paints and coatings.
  4. Corrosion Inhibitors: The compound serves as a source of molybdate ions in the formulation of corrosion inhibitors, particularly in water treatment systems. Molybdate ions help to protect metal surfaces from corrosion, especially in cooling systems and boilers.
  5. Agriculture: Similar to elemental molybdenum, ammonium dimolybdate can be used as a micronutrient in fertilizers. It provides molybdenum, which is essential for nitrogen fixation in plants, thus enhancing crop yield and health.
