Melting Point of Vanadium (V) [& Color, Sources, Discovery ... 2022

One of the most important (and useful) physical properties is the melting point. All atoms will 'melt' at some point, even Vanadium. Ok but what is the melting point of an atom of V?

In the case of Vanadium the melting point is 1890°C ±10°C. Now let's look at other properties and facts about Vanadium...

Vanadium Overview

Vanadium Melting Point

1890°C ±10°C


Discovered By: Nils SefstrΓΆm
Year: 1830
Location: Sweden

State at 20 °C



It is mixed with other metals to make very strong and durable alloys. Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is used as a catalyst, dye and color-fixer.


Found in the minerals patronite (VS4), vanadinite [Pb5(VO4)3Cl], and carnotite [K2(UO2)2(VO4)2.3H2O]. Pure metal produced by heating with C and Cl to produce VCl3 which is heated with Mg in Ar atmosphere.


Soft, ductile, silvery-white metal. Resistant to corrosion by moisture, air and most acids and alkalis at room temperature.

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Melting Point of Vanadium (V) [& Color, Sources, Discovery ..." Materials. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
