Mochium is the logical step down from Mochite. It is commonly found in the Mochium (II) Oxide ore, and is isolated fairly simply through two reactions:
Also, Mochium (II) Oxide is NOT the same as Mochite. Mochite just has... err... a mochium atom with a +3 oxidation state... yeah, totally!
It slices, it dices, it even oxidizes!:
2 M + O2 → 2 MO
M + H2O → MO + H2
It also forms less commonly as Mochium (II) Silicate (M3SiO5), Mochium (III) Silicate (M2SiO5), and Mochium (II) Carbonate (MCO3).
- Mochite MO-
- Mochate MO2-
- Permochate MO3-
Although it does so slowly, Mochium does decay.
