Department of Chemistry, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523, USA

Abstract: The advances in vanadium chemistry over the past 15 years are discussed in the areas of solution chemistry, coordination chemistry, and bioinorganic chemistry and will be presented using the perspectives of "What exists in solution?", "What is its structure?", "How does it react?", and "What are its biological effects?". Current and future challenges will be described briefly.
