Latest Vanadium Stories
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.
Though considered a promising large-scale energy storage device, the vanadium redox battery's use has been limited by its inability to work well in a wide range of temperatures and its high cost.
BETHESDA, Md., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Prudent Energy, the designer, manufacturer, and integrator of the patented Vanadium Redox Battery Energy Storage System (VRB-ESSÂ®), has been awarded a grant from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), in cooperation with SunPower Corp.
BEIJING, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Prudent Energy announced today it has finalized the installation of a 1MWh Vanadium Redox Battery (VRB(TM)) energy storage system, sized at a rated power 500kW and a peak power of 750kW pulse capability for the China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI) in Zhangbei, Hebei province in northern China.
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,...
