What is the optimal pH & temp to precipitate molybdic acid (MoO3.H2O) from an ammoniacal molybdate solution (assume 100's ppm elemental contaminants's such as soluble V & Ni & significant ammonium sulfate...100-gpL+) using conc H2SO4 or HNO3? The precipitate must be free of polymeric molybdate species.

Try pH 0.9. Molydic acid is not very soluble in water (@ 2.1 g/L at 15 oC). I think you should use nitric acid. The temperature could be 45 to 50 oC.
