Molybdenum Trioxide Nanoparticles
Molybdenum Trioxide (MoO3) is a compound of molybdenum (Mo) at its highest oxidation state. It is the most produced product of molybdenum worldwide than any other molybdenum compound, due to the comparative instability of molybdenum oxides of lower oxidation states. MoO3 nanoparticles exhibit an array of desirable electronic and optical properties when chemically deposited in multilayer thin film structures or applied to substrates in a functional coating. The material belongs to the transition metal oxide group, which comprises a range of materials known for widely varying electronic characteristics dependent upon their phase state, crystal or granular structure, and their physiochemical properties. Tight control of MoO3 synthesis enables high-purity manufacturing of semiconductor junctions in both negative and positive phases. This is of significant interest in the development of optoelectronic components such as organic photovoltaics (OPVs). Also, Molybdenum Trioxide nanoparticles can be used hydrogenation catalysis and cracking catalysis. Molybdenum Trioxide nanoparticles are beneficial for using in electrochemical capacitors.
