Electroplating Vanadium



(-----) 2006

Hi I am a postgraduate student at the university of technology, sydney.
I was wondering if it is possible to electroplate vanadium? The sample to be plated will be a thin film of gold on a glass slide. I have read conflicting information about plating vanadium. Due to the nature of my sample vacuum deposition of the vanadium wouldn't be feasible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
cheers

As far as I am aware, vanadium cannot be electroplated using aqueous systems, as it has an oxidation potential of -1.2V. However, it may be possible to do it with ionic liquids.
