The crystal/melt partitioning of V during mantle melting as a function of oxygen fugacity compared with some other elements (Al, P, Ca, Sc, Ti, Cr, Fe, Ga, Y, Zr and Nb)
Vanadium exists in multiple valence states in silicate and oxide systems, namely V2+, V3+, V4+ and V5+. This special characteristic has been exploited in several ways to estimate the redox conditions of high-temperature planetary processes, such as partial melting and core formation. However, the use of V as a universal redox indicator (i.e. suitable for the entire range of oxygen fugacities found in the inner Solar System) requires precise knowledge of the partitioning of all of its several...[Show more]
