Abstract Adsorption of nitrogen was measured on the decomposition products of ammonium metavanadate produced by heating in the presence of air, oxygen and water vapour (4.6 mm Hg). The products were identified by X-ray diffraction. No reduction of the vanadium pentoxide is observed by heating in air in the temperature range 350–450°C whereas in oxygen or water vapour (4.6 mm Hg) a crystalline product close to V 2 O 5 is produced, possessing two characteristic lines at d -distances of 3.520 and… CONTINUE READING
