Vanadium Metal

Vanadium metal is silvery white dendritic pieces, which can process into powder, rod, slug and other forms. It is soluble in nitric acid, aqua regia, concentrated sulfuric acid and so on. Its chemical property is not active at room temperature, which has strong resistance to corrosion and doesn’t react with air and water, neither non-oxidizing acid and strong aqueous alkali. At high temperature, dendritic vanadium pieces react with oxygen, nitrogen and carbon.
