Structure of Molybdenum Carbide Mo2C
Metal carbides are generally considered to have interstitial alloy structures. In common interstitial alloys, metal atoms are arranged in the form of face-centered cubic (FCC), hexagonal dense packing (HCP), and simple hexagonal (HEX), and non-metallic atoms enter the space between the metal atoms. The most common types of gaps between metal atoms are octahedrons and triangular prisms. The crystal structure of metal carbides depends on geometric and electronic factors. The geometric factor can be described by Hager's rule of thumb: when the atomic ratio of nonmetal to metal is below 0.59, simple crystal structures are formed. Interestingly, although metal carbides have simple crystal structures, few of these compounds have the same crystal structure as their parent metals. For example, molybdenum metal has a body-centered cubic structure, while its stable carbides have a hexagonal close-packed structure, and oxycarbides have a face-centered cubic structure. Another factor that determines the crystal structure of interstitial alloys is the electronic factor. The bonding in these compounds results from the cooperation between the sP orbitals of nonmetals and the SPD orbitals of metal atoms.
