The name of one of the compounds given on my worksheet is Molybdenum V. But according to my periodic table, there is no MOlybdenum with a charge of 5. How could this be right? Thanks for looking into this!!

  • Chemistry -

    yes it could be 6, 5, 4, 3, or 2

    if your periodic table isnt detailed enough it probably wont say

  • Chemistry -

    Mo V is not widely known but MoF5 and MoCl5 are known. The MoF5 occurs as the tetramer (MoF5)4 and MoCl5 as the dimer (MoCl5)2.
