Vanadium Information

Vanadium is a soft and ductile, bright white metal. This element has good resistance to corrosion by alkalis, sulphuric and hydrochloric acid. It oxidizes readily about 933K. Vanadium has 26 isotopes. There are 2 naturally occurring isotopes of vanadium, 1 of which is stable. V-49 having the longest half-life at 337 days. Vanadium has nuclear applications, the foil is used in cladding titanium to steel, and vanadium-gallium tape is used to produce a superconductive magnet. Vanadium was originally discovered by Andres Manuel del Rio of Mexico City in 1801. His discovery went unheeded, however, and in 1830, Nils Gabriel Sefstron of Sweden rediscovered it. Metallic vanadium was isolated by Henry Enfield Roscoe in 1867. The name vanadium comes from Vanadis, a goddess of Scandinavian mythology. It is silvery-white metallic transition element. Vanadium is essential to Ascidians. Rats and chickens are also known to require it. Metal powder is a fire hazard, and vanadium compounds should be considered highly toxic. Vanadium may cause lung cancer if inhaled.

Vanadium is mixed with other metals to make very strong and durable alloys. Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is used as a catalyst, dye and color-fixer.
