It has been studied and proven by scientists that molybdenum is present in very small amounts and chelated state in the human body. The most probable action of the metal happens in the complex chemical signaling reactions of the nervous system, waste processing in the kidney, and most importantly in producing emery within human cells. These findings have triggered the curiosity to look more into the contributions and functions on the metal among scientists and scholars around the world.
The most common source of the metal is food; however, researchers have started using the metal and different forms and compositions of it in their research, to include it as a dietary supplement.
Molybdenum research, most prevalent in the United States, has lead to a number of companies producing molybdenum as a dietary supplement. Unlike the other medical companies that make drugs, these supplements do not require a certification by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), whether or not it is safe for consumption. As long as these supplements are not claiming to cure, prevent or treat any diseases, the companies can sell them as supplements. Researchers are involved in various experiments to verify the beneficial as well as the adverse effects of molybdenum in vivo.
The objective of the research is to find out if there are any chemical reactions of molybdenum with other substances in the body, drugs, food that we intake, or even other dietary supplements. In an instance there are reactions, then if those are good or bad for the body, how to overcome any adverse effects that might because due to its intake, the deficiency symptoms if any, and the cure of the same, etc.
Molybdenum research, however, is not only limited to the medical fields. Due to the wide applications of molybdenum products, the chemical and the electronic industries have also invested in the molybdenum research projects. One of the most remarkable usages of molybdenum products are in the demanding applications of nuclear fuels. Researchers around the world are trying to extract more advanced and cost effective ways to use this transition metal in the areas of nuclear research.
Owing to its characteristics of high resistance, there is a lot of research going on in the electronic industries as well, as Molybdenum is used widely in the LCD panels, and for other display components.
Molybdenum research also aims at producing more cost-effective electron tubes, components for high temperature furnaces which in turn find usage in much iron and steeling industries.
Research and development departments of many companies of the above mentioned industries, as well as that of the medical fields have invested considerable amount of time, resources and money to develop newer and more advanced ways of using molybdenum to improve human life and society.
