Descloizite mineral originated from Grootfontein, South West Africa, is used in the present work. The chemical analysis of this mineral reveals the presence of V2O5 = 20.94, CuO = 0.45 wt%, FeO in traces. An EPR study of sample confirms the presence of VO(II) and Fe(III). Optical absorption spectrum of descloizite indicates that VO(II) is present in distorted octahedral environment. NIR results are due to water fundamentals.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
