Vanadium Element in Periodic Table | Atomic Number Atomic Mass
Vanadium is a hard, silvery grey, ductile, and malleable transition metal. Its atomic number is 23 and indicated by the symbol V. It is d-block metal and it is member of a 5th group and 4th period in the periodic table. Vanadium is rarely found free in nature but it occurs in about 65 different minerals; some of them are vanadinite, carnotite and patronite. It is also found in phosphate rock, certain iron ores and some crude oils in the form of organic complexes. Vanadium has two isotopes - one is a stable isotope, 51V and the other one is radioactive isotope, 50V.
Uses Of Vanadium Element:
- Vanadium is mostly used to produce the steel alloys such as high-speed tool steels.
- Vanadium pentoxide is the most important industrial vanadium compound; it is used as a catalyst for the production of sulphuric acid and it is also used in producing superconducting magnets.
- Because of its low neutron-absorbing properties, Vanadium alloys are used in nuclear reactors.
