Molybdenum

Molybdenum is a Group 6 chemical element with the symbol Mo and atomic number 42. It has the sixth-highest melting point of any element, and for this reason it is often used in high-strength steel alloys. Molybdenum is found in trace amounts in plants and animals, although excess molybdenum can be toxic in some animals. The ability of molybdenum to withstand extreme temperatures without significantly expanding or softening makes it useful in applications that involve intense heat, including the manufacture of aircraft parts, electrical contacts, industrial motors, and filaments.Molybdenum is also used in alloys for its high corrosion resistance and weldability. Silas Stone and the scientists at both S.T.A.R. Labs and Dayton Labs developed Molybdenum Steel which has been used in the manufacture of cybernetic prosthetics such as those utilized by the Teen Titan Victor Stone.

Molybdenum (from the Greek word meaning "lead-like"), chemical symbol Mo, is a gray, metallic transition metal. It has an atomic number of 42, and belongs to group 6 on the periodic table. Molybdenum is found in trace amounts in some plants and animals.

Molybdenum has the sixth-highest melting point of any element, and for this reason is commonly used by the UNSC in high-strength alloys.[1]

One example is prior to Operation: FIRST STRIKE, when the Spartan-IIs of Blue Team used carbon-molybdenum I-beams to reinforce the hull of a captured Spirit dropship.[2]
