Molybdenum(III) iodide is the inorganic compound with the formula MoI3.
A further method is direct reaction between molybdenum metal and excess iodine at 300 °C (572 °F).
Molybdenum(III) iodide is a black antiferromagnetic solid that is air-stable at room temperature. In vacuum, it decomposes above 100 °C to molybdenum(II) iodide and iodine. It is insoluble in polar and non-polar solvents. Its crystal structure is isotypic with zirconium(II) iodide.
