Abstract The preparation of vanadium of 99.95+% purity by the Van Arkel-deBoer iodide process is described. Conditions for optimum growth rate and maximum purity were determined. Data on impurity transfer from the feed to the hot filament are presented together with a discussion of contumination by the retort. The quality of vanadium obtained from feed material prepared by bomb reduction and by a sponge process is compared. Some physical properties of this metal are reported. An apparatus designed to prepare several pounds per batch is described. (auth)
