strontium molybdate is used in various industrial applications and is also an important micronutrient for plants and animals. It is a white, crystalline powder and is slightly soluble in water.
strontium molybdate is a scheelite-type compound that has an excellent absorption spectrum in the ultraviolet region, making it suitable for phosphors and wLEDs [1,2]. It can also be doped with Ytterbium, Erbium, Praseodymium, Holmium, and Thulium (Eu3, Tb3, Tb3+, and Te3+) to enhance its light emission capabilities.
It has a wide range of applications in the field of corrosion control, oxidation inhibitor, and catalyst. It is also known to be an excellent reagent in analytical chemistry, paint pigment, and production of molybdated lakes and toners. It is a brightening agent for zinc plating, an anticorrosive additive, and a bath additive for metal finishing. It is also a catalyst in dye and pigment production. It is also a reagent for alkaloids, an additive for fertilizers and feeds, and a micronutrient for plants and animals.
