Series: Chemical Engineering Methods and Technology, Biochemistry Research Trends
BISAC: SCI007000

In this book, the authors present topical research from across the globe in the study of the chemical properties, uses and environmental effects of vanadium. Topics discussed include vanadium in biology and its contributions on the environmental cycles of chemical elements; ferritic stainless steel protected vanadium alloy as cladding material for fast reactors; vanadium oxides for solar control applications; global scientific production of vanadium research; and soft solution processing of nanoscaled lithium vanadium oxides as cathode materials for rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
