Latest Vanadium Stories
Experts at The University of Nottingham are the first to create a stable version of a ‘trophy molecule’ that has eluded scientists for decades.
We’ve heard about batteries that keep going and going, but scientists have taken the next step and created an energy source that keeps going even after its fuel is gone.
If you are not a condensed matter physicist, vanadium oxide (VO2) may be the coolest material you’ve never heard of.
Comparisons between pre- and post-spill specimens show an increase in vanadium, chromium, cobalt, and lead concentrations in shells, gill, and muscle tissue
An international team of physicists has developed a method for taking ultrafast “sonograms” that can track the structural changes that take place within solid materials in trillionth-of-a-second intervals as they go through an important physical process called a phase transition.
In the future, the growing amounts of solar and wind energy will need to be stored for dark or low-wind periods.
Titanium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a light, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including resistance to sea water and chlorine) transition metal with a white-silvery-metallic color. Titanium is used in strong light-weight alloys (most notably with iron and aluminum) and its most common compound, titanium dioxide, is used in white pigments. This element occurs in numerous minerals with the main sources being rutile and...
Vanadinite is a mineral with the formula Pb5(VO4)3Cl, lead chlorovanadate. It is part of a series with two other minerals: pyromorphite (Pb5(PO4)3Cl) and mimetite (Pb5(AsO4)3Cl). It has hexagonal crystals, usually prismatic but the crystals are often skeletal or cavernous and it may be found in crusts. It is brittle and has an uneven fracture. The hardness of vanadinite is 2.75-3 and its specific gravity is 6.7-7.2. It has a resinous lustre and is coloured yellow, yellowish-brown,...
