Abstract

tVanadium is an element with a fascinating history, a widespread diffusion in bacteria and eukaryan organ-isms, and rich coordination chemistry. The properties of vanadium compounds attracted the interest ofresearchers in different fields, such as biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and catalysis, leading to severalreviews. However, although the rich and varied chemistry of vanadium was acknowledged to be due tothe variety of easily accessible oxidation states, no review was devoted – to the best of our knowledge – toelectrochemical properties of vanadium compounds. The present review aims at filling this lacuna, pre-senting a survey of electrochemical data related to vanadium compounds, starting from the eighties of thelast century until mid 2014. The data are organized in tables, with experimental information necessaryfor comparisons, according to oxidation states of vanadium, beginning with the largest set, that is thatof vanadium(IV) compounds and, within this set, on the basis of ligand coordinating atoms. The original ligands abbreviations were kept, when possible, or adapted, according to recent IUPAC recommenda-tions. We hope to offer the reader a comprehensive – if not complete – overview of electrochemistry ofvanadium compounds and to make relatively easy to retrieve the desired information. What is evidentis the variety and versatility of vanadium compounds also in redox processes.
