Vanadium oxides nanoparticles, mainly V2O5, were synthesized by a chemical vapor process using vanadium (V) oxytriethoxide as the precursor. The material synthesis temperatures were varied from 500 to 1300 °C at 200 °C intervals. The physico-chemical properties of vanadium oxides were analyzed by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), BET surface area, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS).
