Abstract

THE reaction of quinquevalent vanadium with hydrogen peroxide, which is a well-known spot test1 and the basis of a colorimetric2 and volumetric3 method for the estimation of vanadium, becomes rather complex on closer inspection. Depending upon concentrations and temperature of the reactants, this reaction can lead to four distinctly different forms.
