Up-to-date coverage of vanadium research--in two accessible, self-contained volumes Vanadium in the Environment brings together the contributions of leading experts on the chemical and toxicological aspects of vanadium exposure and its effects on aquatic and terrestrial environments, human health, and wildlife. This initial volume focuses on chemistry and biochemistry, while Part Two concentrates on health effects and toxicology in living organisms. Topics in this first volume include:
* History, occurrence, and uses of vanadium
* Vanadium in the atmosphere
* Chemistry of relevance to vanadium in the environment
* Water quality criteria for vanadium
* Spectroscopic methods for the characterization of vanadium complexes
* Bioaccumulation and transfer of vanadium in marine organisms
* Structure, function, and models of biogenic vanadium compounds
* Catalytic effects of vanadium on phosphoryl transfer enzymes
* Bioactivity of vanadium compounds on cells in culture
