The vapor of Vanadium Pentoxide is toxic! It is hardly soluble in water, but generates vanadium acid, which makes the solution acidic. In addition, although insoluble in sulfuric acid and nitric acid, it is soluble in alkaline aqueous solutions.

The vapor of Vanadium Pentoxide is toxic! It is hardly soluble in water, but generates vanadium acid, which makes the solution acidic. In addition, although insoluble in sulfuric acid and nitric acid, it is soluble in alkaline aqueous solutions.

It is soluble in hydrochloric acid and emits chlorine gas, which is reduced to IV+ oxidation state.

Vanadium Pentoxide

Properties and stability of Vanadium Pentoxide:

1. Used for vanadium ferroalloy steel production in metallurgical industry, decarburization, desulfurization and catalyst in synthetic ammonia industry. It is used as a coloring material for printing and dyeing and ceramics, a corrosion inhibitor for anticorrosion of equipment in petrochemical plants, and a raw material for preparing vanadium compounds.

2. Used as a catalyst for gas-phase oxidation reactions such as sulfur dioxide and phthalic acid. It can be used as a raw material for the manufacture of various vanadates by reacting with bases.

3.Vanadium Pentoxide is used as analytical reagent, catalyst, UV blocker for glass, developer. Manufacture of the nigrosine dye.
