Sodium orthovanadate (Na3VO4) can be used as a metal precursor in the synthesis of:
  • Vanadium-MCM-48 (V-MCM-48) by anion-exchange method. V-MCM-48 is used as a catalyst in oxidation of styrene to benzaldehyde.
  • Nanorods of vanadium oxide particles by glycothermal method.
  • Yttrium vanadate (YVO4) doped with colloidal europium.

Exhibits various biological and physiological effects in the human body

Biochem/physiol Actions

An inhibitor of protein tyrosine phosphatases, alkaline phosphatases and ATPases.
Inhibits ATPase, alkaline phosphatase and tyrosine phosphatase. Decavanadate, which is formed at acidic pH, inhibits inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-induced Ca2+ release from endocrine cells and blocks IP3 binding to its receptor in brain tissue.
