Vanadiumnoun

A chemical element (symbol V) with atomic number 23; it is a transition metal, used in the production of special steels.

Ferrovanadium

Ferrovanadium (FeV) is an alloy formed by combining iron and vanadium with a vanadium content range of 35–85%. The production of this alloy results in a grayish silver crystalline solid that can be crushed into a powder called .

‘ferrovanadium dust’;

Vanadiumnoun

(countable) A single atom of this element.

Vanadiumnoun

A rare element of the nitrogen-phosphorus group, found combined, in vanadates, in certain minerals, and reduced as an infusible, grayish-white metallic powder. It is intermediate between the metals and the non-metals, having both basic and acid properties. Symbol V (or Vd, rarely). Atomic weight 50.94 (C12=12.000).

Vanadiumnoun

a soft silvery white toxic metallic element used in steel alloys; it occurs in several complex minerals including carnotite and vanadinite
