Up-to-date coverage of vanadium research--in two accessible,self-contained volumes Vanadium in the Environment brings togetherthe contributions of leading experts on the chemical andtoxicological aspects of vanadium exposure and its effects onaquatic and terrestrial environments, human health, and wildlife.This initial volume focuses on chemistry and biochemistry, whilePart Two concentrates on health effects and toxicology in livingorganisms. 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 vanadiumcomplexes
* Bioaccumulation and transfer of vanadium in marineorganisms
* Structure, function, and models of biogenic vanadiumcompounds
* Catalytic effects of vanadium on phosphoryl transferenzymes
* Bioactivity of vanadium compounds on cells in culture
