Potassium Vanadate, also known as Potassium Metavanadate, is a white crystalline compound composed of potassium and vanadium. Its empirical formula is KVO3 and it has a molecular weight of 138.04 g/mol. It can be synthesized by the reaction of potassium hydroxide with vanadium pentoxide or by reacting sodium metavanadate with potassium chloride.

Physical and Chemical Properties

Potassium Vanadate has a melting point of 520°C and is soluble in water. It is an amphoteric oxide, meaning that it can act as both an acid and a base depending on the pH of its environment. It is also hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere.


Potassium Vanadate has many applications in various fields such as electronics, catalysis and material sciences. In electronics, it can be used to manufacture transistors due to its semiconducting properties. In catalysis, it can be used as an oxidizing agent in organic synthesis reactions. In material sciences, it can be used as an electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries due to its high ionic conductivity.

In addition, research studies have shown that Potassium Vanadate can be used to create hydrogen fuel cells with improved efficiency compared to traditional fuel cells using platinum catalysts. Furthermore, it has been studied for its potential use in photocatalytic water splitting for hydrogen production under visible light irradiation due to its ability to absorb light energy efficiently at different wavelengths.
