Molybdate is used throughout the industrial water treatment and power generation industries as a corrosion inhibitor in both open- and closed-loop cooling water systems. In solution, molybdate anions complex with oxidized iron to form a protective film of molybdate and ferric-oxide. Molybdate is considered an effective, environmentally acceptable alternative to chromate treatment. Unlike many other transition elements, molybdenum exhibits low or even negligible toxicity.
