Abstract

The carbon reduction of vanadium pentoxide has been investigated in a plasma-arc furnace. The sample is a mixture of vanadium pentoxide and graphite, vacuum pressed under a pressure of 6 ton/cm**2 into a briquette. Argon has been used as the arc gas. Vanadium of 96% purity is produced within a short time. In combination with a suitable refining process, plasma-arc reduction is considered a useful process for the production of vanadium metal.
