Vanadium: Biological, Environmental, and Engineering Aspects

Received: 18 December 2019;  Published: 08 January 2020;  doi: 10.21926/acr.2001002


Vanadium is an element that is widely distributed in Earth’s crust as well as in sea-water and ground-water reservoirs. Therefore, it exerts a great influence on the issues related to life and environment. Vanadium is utilized by several marine organisms. For example, there are vanadate-dependent ha [...]
