Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Several reliable studies (all Klimisch 2) are available for the chronic toxicity (exposures between 2 and 20 weeks) of 4 V substances (VOSO4, Ca3(VO4)2, NH4VO3and NaVO3) to mortality, body weight or reproduction of 3 bird species (Anas platyrhynchos,Gallus domesticus,Coturnix coturnix japonica). The NOEC values for toxicity to birds range from 5 to ≥300 mg V/kg diet and do not differ significantly for different vanadium substances: ≥110 mg V/kg diet for VOSO4, 20 - 50 mg V/kg diet for Ca3(VO4)2, 5 - ≥300 mg V/kg diet for NH4VO3and a LOEC of 20 mg V/kg diet for NaVO3. All results are based on the total elemental V concetration in food. The lowest NOEC of 5 mg V/kg diet was observed in a 4-weeks study on the effect of food spiked with NH4VO3 on body weight of Gallus domesticus (Cervantes and Jensen, 1986; Klimisch 2).
