Important chemical compounds on The Moon


Abundance and usage


The most abundant element found on the Moon is oxygen. It composes 60% of the Moon's crust by weight, followed by 16-17% silicon, 6-10% aluminum, 4-6% calcium, 3-6% magnesium, 2-5% iron, and 1-2% titanium.

The metals are all present as oxides.

Production and Usage

Mineral and metal extraction and production will require large amounts of energy. Depending on the Martian population and the Settlement construction methods, production rates may be higher than those on Earth.
