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)

Mallmann, Guilherme; O'Neill, Hugh


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]
