A great deal of interest has been devoted to the chemistry of molybdenum; a significant number of new molybdates have been synthesized and characterized.

Nitrates, molybdates, and tungstates also have been used.
RE molybdates having general formula [R.sub.2][(Mo[O.sub.4]).sub.3] have been reported as a ferroelectric material [1].
Bismuth molybdates have the general chemical formula [Bi.sub.2][O.sub.3] * nMo[O.sub.3] where n = 3, 2 or 1, corresponding to the [alpha]-[Bi.sub.2][Mo.sub.3][O.sub.12], [beta]-[Bi.sub.2][Mo.sub.2][O.sub.9], and [gamma]-[Bi.sub.2]Mo[O.sub.6].
Replacing molybdates, where possible, will remain a top priority as molybdate prices remain comparatively high, and some concerns about their environmental impact have arisen.
