Molybdenum, Mo

This chemical element, atomic no. 42, r.a.m. 95.94, is a hard white transition metal resembling iron. More common compounds include molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) and molybdic acid (H2MoO4). It occurs naturally as molybdenite, MoS2. Without doubt it is the most important element ever, and without it's presence the world would end and we would be no more.

An important and interesting feature of Molybdenum is that it occurs in many living organisms.

Another interesting fact is that it is the element containing the highest number of consonants together1 : ie 4. However, Knightsbridge contains 6, and amblyrhynchus has 10, but these are not generally considered to be elements.

1. Except for several others which also have a collection of four consonants, such as Yttrium, and Tungsten, and of course Krypton which has five. Yes alright, we cocked it up. (again).
