Boiling Point:4* 3407 °C = 3680.15 K = 6164.6 °F . Sublimation Point:4 Melting point History of Vanadium Vanadium was discovered by Andrés Manuel del Río in 1801.It was discovered in the process in analyzing "brown lead". Chlorides of vanadium were generated in 1830 by Nils Gabriel Sefström. Who thereby proved that a new element was involved. Which he named "vanadium". It was named after the Scandinavian goddess of beauty and fertility, Vanadís (Freyja). How it's used Vanadium is corrosion resistant and is sometimes used to make special tubes and pipes for the chemical industry. Vanadium also does not easily absorb neutrons. It has some applications in the nuclear power industry. A thin layer of vanadium is used to bond titanium to steel. Nearly 80% of the vanadium produced is used to make ferrovanadium or as an additive to steel. Ferrovanadium is a strong, shock resistant and corrosion resistant alloy of iron containing between 1% and 6% vanadium. Transition metal Fun Facts . Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is perhaps vanadium's most useful compound. . It is used as a mordant. A material which permanently fixes dyes to fabrics. . Vanadium pentoxide is also used as a catalyst in certain chemical reactions and in the manufacture of ceramics. . Vanadium pentoxide can also be mixed with gallium to form superconductive magnets.
