Why is Vanadium a Transition Metal

0 Comment

The melting point of vanadium is about 1000 degrees lower than that of columbium, so there is much less interest in vanadium for high temperature applications than in the abundant refractory metals. Pure vanadium has only recently become available in quantities large enough for thorough studies of its physical and mechanical properties and for alloy […]
