 About the Book 

Written by leading authorities, this unique work comprehensively examines the aqueous chemistry of vanadium, focusing on the V(V) oxidation state, paying special attention to the use of V-51 NMR spectroscopy. It covers reactions of vanadium with numerous ligands-many with biological importance-such as amino acids, peptides, and sulfhydryl ligands. It reviews vanadiums role in biological systems and pharmacological effects and addresses one of the most important questions in vanadium chemistry: the role of ligand electronic properties in determining speciation, coordination geometry, and heteroligand reactivity. Practical applications include a detailed description of a non-aqueous battery system using vanadium oxide bronze.
