  • Sodium metavanadate has been used as vanadium source in the microbial culture media to study vanadium reduction by mesophilic and thermophilic methanogens.
  • It can be used as a precursor in the preparation of vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) coated carbon nanotubes.
  • It is also used to synthesize corrosion-inhibitive additives for organic coatings.

Vanadium exposure has been known to lead to lipid peroxidation, demyelination and oligodendrocytes depletion. We investigated behaviour and glial reactions in juvenile mice after early neonatal exposure to vanadium, and examined the direct effects of vanadium in oligodendrocyte progenitor cultures...
