Speciation of Vanadium(IV) and Vanadium(V) Using UV/VIS Detection

The Benfield Process is a popular method used for the removal of CO2 and H2S from industrial and petroleum gases. Vanadium pentoxide is added as a corrosion inhibitor and is shown to be most effective when added in a certain V(IV)/V(V) ratio.

Therefore, speciation and determination of V(IV) and V(V) is very important. It is easy to achieve this speciation on A Metrosep A Supp 5 - 50/4.0 column using UV/VIS detection at 282 nm and EDTA as an eluent.
