Distribution Molybdenum (Mo)

  •  Mo concentration in guinea pigs following 25 days of inhalation of sub-LD50 doses of the sulfide, the dust and fume of Mo trioxide, and Ca molybdate was fairly uniform in lung, liver, kidney, spleen and bone for all Mo species at the end of exposure (Fairhall et al., 1945; Dick and Bingley, 1951). Mo concentrations were 1 to 6 g/g fresh tissue for all substances except Mo trioxide and Ca molybdate dusts, which were 2- to 4-fold higher in kidney, lung, spleen and bone.
     

  • Rats stored more Mo from ingested Mo trioxide than from Ca molybdate. Mo storage was least from Mo sulfide (Fairhall et al., 1945; Dick and Bingley, 1951).
