molybdic acid gives a clear bead when hot, but is turbid and white after cooling.
A blue precipitate falls, which is a molybdate of molybdic oxide, hydrated, and abundantly soluble in water.
It is brittle and very infusible; when heated in contact with the air, it is converted into molybdic anhydride, MoO3.
The molybdic and tungstic acids combine with the soda, forming the respective salts.
(a.) Molybdenum (Mo) occurs in the metallic state; also combined with sulphur, or as molybdic acid combined with lead.
If the molybdic acid is fairly reduced by this means, it is to be moistened by nitric acid, and the heating repeated.
