Vanadium Metal

Vanadium metal is silvery white dendritic pieces, however which can process into powder, rod, slug and other forms too. It is soluble in nitric acid, aqua regia, concentrated sulfuric acid and so on. Its chemical property is not active at room temperature, so which has strong resistance to corrosion and doesn’t react with air and water, neither non-oxidizing acid and strong aqueous alkali. But At high temperature, dendritic vanadium pieces react with oxygen, nitrogen and carbon. V element is mainly for processing alloy steel and catalyst, for instance Chrome vanadium alloy get common uses. Vanadium price is relatively high  due to decreasing production and increasing demands. V element could get from reducing vanadium pentoxide by calcium or reducing vanadium trichloridey by magnesium
