Trace Elements of Group 6 (Previously Group VIb)

  • Chapter

Abstract

The trace metals of the Group 6, chromium (Cr), molybdenum (Mo), and tungsten (W), have strong lithophilic tendencies. They have variable oxidation states, possess bimodal redox behavior in terrestrial and aquatic environments, and are likely to be present in two oxidation states, +3 and +6 (Table II-6.1). Metals of this group have the propensity to form oxyanions and coordinate only weakly with other common environmentally ligands such as Cl or OH.
