Abstract Vanadium pentoxide (V 2 O 5 ) is one of the compounds bound to the suspended material found in the atmosphere and classified as particulate matter. The main source of these pollutants is the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels. Some of these fuels are rich in vanadium, such as Mexican, Venezuelian and Kuwaity petroleum, and after the incomplete combustion, carbon-core particles are liberated to the atmosphere, with V 2 O 5 adsorbed to its surface. These particles, about 2.5 μm in… CONTINUE READING
