Background Niobium pentoxide, is the chemical compound with the formula Nb2O5.
Production Niobium pentoxide is used mainly in the production of capacitors, lithium niobate, and optical glass. Thin films of Nb2O5 form the dielectric layers in solid electrolyte capacitors and these layers can be grown electrolytically on sintered bodies containing niobium monoxide. Generally Nb2O5 is considered to be very insoluble and unreactive. However, it is attacked by concentrated HF and will dissolve in fused alkali. Reduction with carbon forms the basis of the two stage Balke process for producing niobium.
